Athletic Trainer Information
January 28th, 2017

Career options for an athletic trainer are vast. An athletic trainer can work on a multitude of patients ranging from the general public in need of physical rehabilitation to amateur and professional athletes. An athletic trainer can work in a hospital setting, a rehabilitation clinic, a school/university, for a particular sports team, or for the military.

The tasks of an athletic trainer vary greatly and they include tending to minor injuries such as twists and sprains. An athletic trainer will properly fit the athlete to their athletic equipment and ensure that any physician recommended regimes are followed by the individual in their care. If the athletic trainer is working for a sports team, they are required to be present for every game, practice, and training session.

Athletic trainers should be strong and fit as they will be required to assist, and be an example to, their patients and athletes. This includes heavy lifting, supporting another persons weight from time to time and giving exercise demonstrations. This is a physically demanding career.

If an athletic trainer is working for a sports team they may be required to give presentations and training in regards to the dangers of performance enhancing drugs and other forms of drug and alcohol abuse.

An athletic trainer is considered a healthcare professional so a minimum of a Bachelor's Degree in a health related field is required for most positions. In addition to a Bachelor's Degree, most states have their own licensing requirements for athletic trainers.
