Now that winter sports have drawn to a close, we are able to spend much more time outdoors. Spring sports include baseball, softball, men’s and women’s soccer, track and field, volleyball, and tennis. We are rotating every two weeks to get a wide variety of experiences. Essentially we will have one rotation with almost every sport, giving us a sample of the main themes for each.

We are fortunate that the athletic training staff, student athletes, coaches, and administration have been so welcoming, providing us with a proper learning environment. We have also had the opportunity to experience Division I athletics, top notch athletic facilities, and a diverse population of athletes and staff members alike. While our time at SIUE is rapidly coming to an end, we know one thing for sure—it will always hold a special place in our hearts.

This is one of a series of posts by the Saint Louis University Athletic Training students featuring their clinical site and their preceptors. The number, quality and diversity of clinical instruction are major assets for the SLU AT Program.
