If you are interested in athletic training, or any area of sport medicine, this is the camp for you. Sports Medicine and Athletic Training careers are one of the fastest growing fields in the allied health care profession. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, athletic training is projected to grow 23 percent from 2016 to 2026. Sports Medicine clinicians specialize in the prevention, recognition and treatment of activity related injuries and illnesses. Many work in educational settings, hospitals, private clinics, corporate settings, fitness centers and professional sports teams.
At the Las Positas College Sports Medicine Camp, campers will have the opportunity to learn day to day procedures of a sports medicine professional. Preventive and rehabilitative methods used in common athletic injuries, such as taping and wrapping, therapeutic modalities and emergency care are just a few of the things this camp will focus on. The hands-on LPC Sports Medicine Camp is an all-inclusive program designed to prepare students for a future in sports medicine.
