The Longhorns Sports Medicine Camp is designed for high school students who are interested in attaining basic and advanced Athletic Training knowledge and skills. The camp consists of lecture and laboratory sessions covering a variety of Sports Medicine topics. Participants also have the opportunity to meet and interact with UT Athletic Trainers, many of whom are instrumental in the selection of future UT Athletic Training students.
Campers will learn:
- Anatomy pertinent to athletic injuries
- Injury evaluation techniques
- Principles of injury prevention
- Principles of injury rehabilitation
- Emergency management procedures
- Taping techniques
Our "Basic" camp curriculum is geared towards first-time campers or first-year student trainers, while our "Advanced" camp curriculum is directed towards Juniors or Seniors, or those who have attended a Sports Medicine Camp before. Both involve a large component of "hands-on," one-on-one instruction.
