The Courts is proud to partner with Children’s Hospital Colorado to provide an on-site Certified Athletic Trainer to help our student athletes prepare, perform and recover.
What is a Certified Athletic Trainer?
Certified Athletic Trainers (ATs) are healthcare providers specially trained in injury and illness prevention, clinical evaluation and diagnosis, immediate and emergency care, and treatment and rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses in athletes. An AT has a bachelor’s or master’s degree from an accredited professional athletic training education program. In addition, ATs must pass a comprehensive board certification test and meet continuing education requirements to maintain certification. ATs work under the direction of physicians.
- Athletic training coverage at The Courts is provided Wed-Fri 4:30pm-8:30pm and all day Saturday and Sunday during events.
- The Athletic Training Room is at the end of the hallway between Courts 1 & 2.
What can the Certified Athletic Trainer do for student athletes at The Courts?
With a Certified Athletic Trainer at The Courts, you can get free injury assessments and recommendations for follow-up care. The AT can not only help you manage injuries and develop functional rehabilitation, but also provide education to help prevent injuries so you can perform and thrive at basketball, volleyball, futsal and everything in between.
