15 Mar 113. Celebrating The Athletic Training Profession During National Athletic Training Month
March is National Athletic Trainers’ Month! Show all the athletic trainers you know your appreciation for all that they do. Athletic trainers wear many different hats, have a variety of skillsets, and support athletes and people throughout sports and life. Listen in as Andrew shares insights about the athletic training profession, the training and educational requirements of certified athletic trainers (ATC), and what drives him to continue to help people as an athletic trainer.
Athletic trainers are emerging in many different settings that help people through injuries, overcome adversity, and return back to sports. There are so many athletic trainers out there that dedicate themselves to make a positive impact on the lives of others. Athletic trainers do more than just keep people safe and help people back to full health, but also build valuable relationships with everyone they work with.
Andrew is extremely grateful to all of the people he has worked with throughout his career, from athletes of all levels, colleagues, and a wide range of professionals. Everyone Andrew encountered has helped him to continue to learn and grow both professionally and personally. This is his passion and why he continues to do what he loves, helping people overcome injuries, creating resources that help to optimize human performance, and constantly learning to help to improve the quality of people’s lives. There are many great athletic trainers out there that do the exact same thing for all of the people they encounter. Be sure to thank your athletic trainers and show them your appreciation.
