Each summer a group of sudents attend two to three-day training camps held at various college campuses. These students are instructed by college trainers in basic and/or advanced skills and competencies.
Athletic training is recognized by the American Medical Association as an Allied Healthcare Profession. Becoming a student trainer is an excellent way to gain a head start into a health or medical career. All student trainers, with the exception of freshmen, receive physical education credit for the time they put in with the athletic training staff.
