The Avila University Athletic Training Department offers a wide range of services for the Avila University student-athlete. The overall safety and well-being of our athletes is our primary concern.  Servicing over 300 athletes in 14 sports, the staff provides pre-event preventative taping and bracing, on the field evaluation and emergency care, appropriate physician referral, and necessary follow-up rehabilitation. The athletic training facility is located inside the Mabee Fieldhouse on the lower level and houses all the necessary equipment needed to keep the Avila athletes on the field.
