Our Campus Recreation Athletic Trainer is a health care professional who collaborates with other health care professionals to optimize physical activity and participation in athletics, work, and life. Athletic training encompasses the prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of acute or chronic injuries and medical conditions.
Recreation participants are only eligible for athletic training services through the Campus Recreation Athletic Trainer in the Recreation Athletic Training facility, and are not eligible for services through the Varsity Athletic Training Facility.
Athletic training services, as an entity of the Club Sports program, will function to protect the health of, and provide a safe environment for Colorado College (CC) individuals participating in recreation programs and while using the fitness facilities. The mission of the athletic training services is to care for all individuals through prevention, examination, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of emergency injuries/situations, acute or chronic injuries, and medical conditions.
Colorado College’s Athletics Department assumes no responsibility or liability for any consequences resulting directly or indirectly for any action or inaction chosen based on the information or services provided.
The athletic training room is located on the second floor of the El Pomar Sports Complex in room 220. It is situated in between the Auxiliary Gym and the ice machine.
HOURS OF OPERATION
The recreation athletic training room at CC will be open Monday through Friday from 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Weekend hours are dependent on club sport teams’ game schedules. The Campus Rec ATC will determine hours based on their availability, in the case that extra time is required.
The college does NOT hold a blanket insurance policy for Campus Recreation participants. Consequently, all recreation participants are encouraged to purchase some type of comprehensive accident health insurance. All financial responsibility rests with the participant.
EVENT COVERAGE/VISITING TEAM POLICIES
The Campus Rec ATC will provide medical coverage for all club sport home events. Medical coverage will consist of pregame stretching, taping/wrapping, game time injury evaluation, and return to play decision-making, as well as post-game evaluation and treatment.
The Campus Rec ATC will generally be present in the recreation athletic training facility 90- minutes prior to the start of competition, at the site of competition 60-minutes prior to the start, and back in the recreation athletic training facility for 30-minutes following the conclusion of the competition. Injury ice bags, ice, water coolers filled with ice water, and cups will be provided on the sidelines during all home events. It is preferred, although not required, that visiting teams provide supplies such as tape, pre-wrap, elastikon, etc, if any of their athletes request to be taped before a game. Visiting teams traveling without an athletic trainer must provide written documentation from their team's athletic trainer or team physician for any athlete requesting treatment from a modality, e.g. electrical stim and/or hydrocollator packs. The notice must provide details regarding the modalities and parameters of use.
