Athletic Training Student Aide

The Athletic Training Student Aid Program is geared towards students with an interest in observing and assisting the Athletic Trainer 2-3 times a week in the Athletic Training Room, as well as individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in the medical field. Whether you want to become a physician, surgeon, physical therapist, certified athletic trainer, or nurse, participation in this program provides hands on experience that students would not normally learn until their college years. Gaining theses skills as a high school student gives you a competitive edge as you apply for college. Colleges and universities will recognize your extra-curricular involvement as an intern in a nationally recognized allied health medical field. You will not only become an important member of the sports medicine team at Eureka HS, but you will become a member of the Athletic Training Family.

Student Athletic Trainer Opportunities

Student Athletic Trainers are students who are interested in helping the Eureka athletic teams by learning skills in first aid and athletic training. Student athletic trainers are a vital part of the sports medicine field. Our goal is to expose you to the field of athletic training/sports medicine through hands-on experience. You will need to be an individual who is available to help out at least 2-3 times/week and you must be reliable. Through this program the high school student who has little or no previous athletic training experience will build their athletic training ability. An emphasis will be placed each day on the prevention, recognition, treatment and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. In addition, participating in this program results in the accumulation of volunteer hours which can be beneficial for scholarships, college applications, school projects, and building your resume. The program will address the current concepts in Sports Medicine. Topics will include, but are not limited to:

  • Taping Techniques 
  • First Aid/Wound Care
  • Emergency Procedures 
  • Stretching Techniques
  • Care for Heat Illness
  • Splinting Techniques
  • Athletic Injuries
  • Athletic Training Profession
  • Rehabilitation Techniques
  • Concussions
