Athletic Trainers, More Than
a Personal Trainer

McLeod Certified Athletic Trainers work with many of the high school, college and professional teams in the region.

Athletic training goes beyond taping an ankle or applying ice. It involves educating the community, working with healthcare providers and improving quality of life for all athletes. Athletic Trainers educate and implement guidelines to make sports safer, helping prevent and assess injuries, and assist with rehabilitation. They also impact the immediate family of an injured athlete, coaches they work with and spectators.
