2015 High School Symposium in the Making

Spring is around the corner and you know what that means! The High school Athletic Training Student Symposium is on its way! Last year we had approximately seven high schools attend and it was a huge success! The students rotated around to different stations and learned a wide range of what athletic trainers deal with throughout their careers. Some of the stations were taping, spine boarding, splinting, and seminars about concussions and nutrition. Our own Athletic Training Students brought Tiger Hearts to the symposium. Tiger Hearts allowed for our high school students to know how to utilize the “hands only” CPR technique. We can’t share the secrets we have up our sleeves for this year’s symposium but we have set the standards high to keep educating high school students about what being an athletic trainer is all about.
