The partnership also allows two Athletic Trainers to help serve our teams, which is something that we have not had in the past. We are confident with the additional support, our student-athletes will have the optimal opportunity for success both on and off of the field of competition."
Along with the administration, the coaching staff has showed its support of the move to Select Physical Therapy, "I think having Select Physical Therapy on campus will be a positive experience for all our student athletes" stated Head Volleyball Coach Justin Hoskins. "Having a trainer devoted to each in-season sport will allow our student-athletes not only great coverage during activities but consistent monitoring of injuries, ailments, and progress. I'm looking forward to working with our two trainers and helping them make our department even better."
