The Ventura College athletic program is committed to delivering the highest quality health care to all of its student-athletes. The the program is staffed by two full-time athletic trainers certified by the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA) Board of Certification. They serve as care givers for student athletes as well as clinical educators, supervisors, and mentors for athletic training students. The staff maintains current knowledge and skill through participation in regular in-services and attendance at educational conferences annually.
The primary goal of the athletic training staff at Ventura College is to protect and return the injured student athlete to sport participation as quickly and safely as possible. The athletic trainer possesses knowledge in injury prevention, injury recognition, evaluation, and assessment; immediate care; and the treatment, rehabilitation, and reconditioning of athletic injuries. Our main objective is to first help prevent athletic injuries from occurring. Recognizing that some injuries are inevitable, our staff is available to render first aid, provide follow-up treatment and rehabilitation, and counsel student-athletes and their parents on available treatment options. Ventura College strives to deliver current, scientifically sound care to each and every athlete regardless of his or her sport or personal team standing.
The Ventura College training staff also use the latest technology to track all activities related to athletic training with each student athlete. All student athletes will need to register online with our Sportsware Online Tracking System (www.swol123.net).
