- Athletic Training

- Exercise Physiology
- Family Practice/Sports Medicine
- Networked with Orthopedic Associates
Athletic TrainingThe Sports Medicine team provides athletic training contracted coverage to every school within 24 miles of the Minot area as well as university, professional and amateur athletics. The athletic trainers travel to the schools on a weekly/daily basis for pre-game or practice preparation, injury evaluation, injury treatment and, when necessary, referral to additional medical attention. The presence of the Sports Medicine athletic training staff at the schools helps ease the minds of parents, coaches and administration and ensures that proper medical treatment is being provided for the athletic injuries. It also ensures the athletes are returned quickly and safely to competition.
District, regional and state high school tournament activities are also a part of the medical coverage of the Sports Medicine Staff. Past medical contract coverage has included local private and amateur sporting events such as State Amateur Basketball and National Softball Tournaments to name a few.
The Athletic Trainers at Trinity are allied health professionals certified by the National Athletic Trainers Association Board of Certification. They must possess a minimum of a four-year bachelors degree including extensive training in athletic injury evaluation, treatment and care.
This training includes hands-on training with athletes for a minimum of three years while studying toward their degree in college.
The athletic trainers must also be licensed by the state of North Dakota. Trinity also requires the athletic trainers to be first aid and CPR certified as well as possess specialized training in specific athletic-related emergency protocols.
