Athleticare Sports Health Foundation pairs schools with board-certified Athletic Trainers who attend games, practices, workouts, and any other sporting events. Athleticare Athletic Trainers provide sports medical services ranging from preventative care and injury treatments to providing resources, training, and education.
The ultimate goal of creating a safe sports program is to protect student athletes. Studies have shown that schools with an Athletic Trainer report fewer injuries sustained by student-athletes than schools without Athletic Trainers. Moreover, having Athletic Trainers in schools improves the rate of diagnosed concussions and other sports-related health issues, including dehydration.
Athleticare Sports Health Foundation is actively involved in the community, giving coaches, parents, and student-athletes the tools they need to play a better game without injury or fear of injury. Some of our services include: Concussion Baseline Testing, Free Sports Physicals, Concussion Prevention Training, Equipment Safety Inspections, Emergency Action Plan (EAP) Consulting, First Aid and CPR Training.
Athleticare Sports Health Foundation offers extensive hands-on experiences through our Athletic Training Graduate Fellowship Program. Board-certified Athletic Trainers in the program work toward a Master of Science in Applied Exercise Science with a concentration in Sports Medicine through Concordia University.
