Visiting Athletic Trainers

Visiting Athletic Trainers Guide

The Athletic Training Staff would like to welcome you to Avila University. We hope that you enjoy your stay here, and we look forward to assisting you in any way possible. The following information is just a little of what we have to offer you and your teams. If your team has any special needs, please let us know in advance so we can provide for you accordingly.

 
 

Medical Coverage

The Athletic Training Room will be open approximately one and one-half hours prior to an event. The Athletic Training Room is located in the lower level of Mabee Fieldhouse. At least one Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) will be in attendance at all home events. During the football season, Avila's team physicians consisting of one family practitioner and an orthopedic surgeon will be in attendance. The Medical Consultants will be on-call for all other home events. We will have all emergency supplies, such as AED, vacuum splints and crutches on the home sideline/bench as well. An ambulance will be present at all football games.

 
 

Athletic Training Room Amenities

Electrical stimulation, ultrasound, moist heat packs, ice bags, as well as taping areas will be available to your team. If taping/wrapping of visiting student-athletes needs to be administered, please bring your own supplies.

If your team will be traveling without a certified athletic trainer for any event, we request a detailed listing of any significant treatments needed for your student-athletes. Please e-mail this list to [email protected] no later than 1 day prior to your team's arrival at Avila.
