April 20, 2017 - Do you have a high-school student who loves sports, science
and helping people? If so, they might enjoy attending the Student Athletic
Trainer Camp, hosted by Southeast Georgia Health System.
The Health System’s Sports Medicine certified athletic trainers will
provide valuable hands-on training and education for students entering
grades 9-12 during the sixth annual Student Athletic Trainer Camp, June
13-15, 2017, 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. The camp will be held at the Brunswick
High School Gymnasium and Athletic Facilities, 3885 Altama Avenue.
This three-day comprehensive sports medicine camp introduces high school
students to the field of sports medicine and athletic training and the
many associated career opportunities. No previous experience is necessary.
Training will include:
- Injury treatment techniques
- Athletic taping and bracing techniques
- CPR and automated external defibrillator (AED)
- First aid
“We give camp participants an introduction to different health care
professions related to sports medicine, including athletic trainer, nutritionist,
physician, orthopaedic surgeon, physical therapist and physician assistant,”
says Becky Knor, M.S., ATC, PES, certified athletic trainer, Southeast
Georgia Health System Sports Medicine. “We teach some basics of
anatomy, athletic bracing and taping techniques, and how to react to emergency
situations and life-threatening conditions.”
Students will have a chance to learn and practice their newly acquired
skills so that they can return to their high school feeling confident
in assisting the certified athletic trainer.
“Students that finish this camp often have the opportunity to work
with the athletic trainer at their school in a student aide position,”
Knor says. “This gives them a much more in-depth learning experience
that looks great on a college application.”
Space is limited and the camp is expected to fill up quickly; registration
is required and must be submitted, along with payment, by June 2, 2017.
Cost for the three-day camp is $85 and includes camp materials, lab supplies,
T-shirt, CPR certification card and lunch and snacks.
