Interested in being a Student Athletic Trainer?
What is a Student Athletic Trainer
A student athletic trainer provides a valuable service to the student-athletes. They are responsible for providing basic first aid, injury prevention, rehabilitation of injuries and care for athletic equipment. These skills will be learned over a period of time through teaching lessons and observations during practices and games. To be able to learn these skills, it is necessary to possess self-discipline and motivation.
Student athletics trainers should be dedicated and supportive of their teams. Because of this, they are expected to be at all practices (football only) and games. They are responsible for getting certain things ready for and help make sure that the athletes are prepared for practices and games. During practices and games, they are to help with first aid, equipment problems, hydration, and watching for possible injuries.
