Find an Athletic Trainer
Why do I need an athletic trainer?
- Having a certified, licensed athletic trainer on staff reduces liability that your athletic program assumes when you provide interscholastic sports. You have the protection of a medical professional, trained to make decisions and act in the best interest of student-athlete safety.
- The Youth Sports Concussion Safety Act (SB07) requires all Illinois schools to develop concussion policies and identify a Concussion Oversight Team. Athletic trainers are experts in concussion recovery, and can ensure that student-athletes return from a concussion in the safest manner.
