Athletic Training Services at East Ridge
There will be a certified athletic trainer on campus for home events. There is also an on campus athletic training room/clinic available to all IN-SEASON student-athletes free of charge. Due to liability limitations, injuries that occur out of a student-athlete’s season will be referred to their primary care physician.
The Athletic Training facility is located in the back of the gym in room 9-108.
Immediately after school, in-season athletes may come into the athletic training room for pre-practice taping, treatment, rehabilitation, and injury evaluations. Taping is reserved for injured athletes who are consistently performing therapy in the clinic to rehabilitate the injured area.
