We rotated from time to time between those different positions so that at the same time we could be able to watch what the athletic trainers were doing. SLU´s staff was very organized to give a good coverage for such a big event and all the athletic trainers that were present took into account the importance of working as a team. I got to observe Petra Knight ATC and Jonathan Burch for an entire day and I was able to learn what they decided to do on different situations to give our SLU athletes and other team´s athletes the best possible care. It was a good introduction to what the professional phase of the athletic training is going to look like for me during the next two years and I could not be more excited.
As a current student-athlete for the university, I am looking forward to get into the professional phase of the Athletic Training Program in order to get to experience what the PY1´s and PY2´s are feeling right now with all the knowledge that they are acquiring thanks to the preceptors.
