AT Faculty, Staff and Students Cover National Events on SLU Campus

The week of June 7-10, 2012 was a busy one on the Saint Louis University campus and the SLU Athletic Training faculty, staff and students were mobilized to participate in the events!

The top men's and women's gymnasts in the USA competed in the VISA Championships at Chaifetz Arena to determine who goes on to the US Olympic Trials.  Local coverage for the event was sponsored by SLUCare and coverage was coordinated by SLU Head Athletic Trainer Jonathan Burch.  SLU Sports Medicine physicians and SLU AT faculty, staff and students worked with the USA Gymnastics Sports Medicine team to provide coverage for the event.

For the 13th straight year, Nike has hosted the top 100 high school freshman and sophomore boy's basketball players in the Simon Recreation Center at SLU.  Over the years, this camp has included many future college and NBA players and the SLU AT Program provided medical coverage for the event. SLU AT Program Director Tony Breitbach served as the Medical Coordinator for the event.
