Great place to gain life long experience and memories
STUDENT ATHLETIC TRAINER (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – August 10, 2018
I worked mainly with the men’s soccer team which was amazing, but during the weekdays I saw all the Olympic athletes and helped them with any need they may have had in that moments visit. I learned a lot of pre habilitation and rehabilitation exercises and tools to help athletes prevent injury or get better after one. I learned all sorts of neat and up to date modality services to help the athletes recover. From stem units, to ultra sounds, ankle tapings, writs, fingers, toes, you name it I learned how to do it! The management was great and given it was an intern position I found the staff to be extremely patient when teaching us what we needed to know, and then the trust they had in us afterward allowing us to step out and eventually do a lot of these things on our own! The hardest part about the job was juggling being a full time student as well, so working plenty of hours through the week, working games on the weekends, studying for tests and finals and making sure to go to class was a lot but it held a great reward teaching me that I could indeed handle such a demanding schedule! The best part, I got to meet so many amazing athletes, from all different sports teams and from all over the world! It was amazing to see how many different types of people could come together to represent one school and to think I had a big part in keeping them healthy.
Meeting all the awesome athletes and getting to work every game from the side lines.
