3. Rehabilitation and Recognition of Athletic Injuries: We will work with athletes to get them back on field following an injury.
4. Health Care Administration.
5. Professional Development: The Athletic Trainer works in conjunction with the Athletic Director, Physicians, and all of the Coaches to keep the athletes safe during sport participation.
