Athletic Training Student Camp
The UT Arlington Athletic Training Education Program hosted its 2nd Annual Athletic Training Workshop. The three-day event educated 20 high school students from Texas and Alabama about the field of Athletic Training. Topics addressed during the workshop included injury prevention, management, and rehabilitation strategies using lectures and hands-on activities. Additionally, workshop participants attended a Texas Rangers game where they were able to go behind the scenes to see the Texas Rangers athletic training facilities and meet the head athletic trainer, Jamie Reed.
Overall, the kids enjoyed the experience. One student remarked that she liked the camp because “it made me feel like this really is the field I want to be in.”
The UT Arlington Athletic Training Education Program is looking forward to hosting our 3rd Annual Athletic Training Workshop June 12th to June 14th, 2013.
