Athletic trainers provide medical care and supervision during games and practices, and develop injury prevention programs to keep athletes healthy and on the field. Additionally, athletic trainers are able to assist with injury prevention education during practice, one-on-one time with athletes and through regular communication with parents. Should an injury occur, athletic trainers are able to diagnosis, treat and rehabilitate an injured athlete. As medical professionals, athletic trainers keep detailed records of the injuries they see and treatments they provide. More information about athletic training can be found at atyourownrisk.org.
