Athletic Training Office
In association with the National Athletic Training Association, the Spring Grove Area School District Athletic Trainer and Strength Coordinator would like to remind you that:
- Athletic Training is practiced by certified athletic trainers: healthcare professionals who work to prevent, diagnose, and intervene in case of emergency, acute and chronic medical conditions, particularly in the orthopedic and musculoskeletal disciplines.
- Athletic trainers hold at least a bachelor's degree, are certified through an independent agency, the Board of Certification, Incorporated, and are Licensed by the State of Pennsylvania.
- Athletic trainers are part of the sports medicine and healthcare team, which includes physicians and other healthcare personnel.
- Athletic trainers provide a financial return on investment for secondary schools, occupational employers, physicians, hospitals, and clinics and help to ease the burden on the public and private healthcare systems.
- Athletic trainers differ from personal trainers or "trainers", who focus solely on fitness and conditioning. Athletic trainers have higher education and certification requirements than personal trainers.
