Athletic Trainer Assistant
The athletic training staff is looking for students with an interest in being a part of the medical staff for athletic teams. We are specifically looking for students who are motivated, energetic, and enjoy working in an active environment. As athletics practice and events typically occur after normal class hours, nights and some weekends will be required. There is a moderate amount of lifting involved, but students will be working in groups for lift assists.
Duties will include:
- Assisting certified athletic trainers with set-up and tear-down for events and practices
- Limited application of tape
- Distribution of water for practices and games
- Application of ice as appropriate for injury post-activity
- Equipment and surface sanitization and general athletic training room organization and cleaning
On the job training will be provided to students willing to commit to becoming a student assistant. Students will not be asked or permitted to participate in sport or drills at any time.
Employment may include both semesters or be limited to one semester if desired. First, second, and third year students encouraged to apply. We try to retain students from year-to-year to minimize training volume and orientation. Typical work-weeks are 8-15 hours (determined by sport demand and student assistant numbers). Some of the games will be played on the road, and as such there may be some travel. Daily job sites include both the Flood Arena athletic training room and the Strong Stadium athletic training room.
