Meet the Athletic Trainer

Children’s Hospital Colorado and Real Colorado Soccer formed a partnership to promote the health and wellness of the entire Real community. As a result, Children’s Colorado Sports Medicine Center now staffs a certified athletic trainer (AT) to provide injury management for Real Colorado players.

ATs are specially trained in Injury/Illness prevention, clinical evaluation and diagnosis, immediate and emergency care, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries and illnesses. ATs have a bachelors or masters degree from an accredited professional athletic training education program and must pass a comprehensive board certification test. ATs work under the direction of physicians, as prescribed by state licensure statutes, and to keep their certification they must meet ongoing continuing education requirements to keep this certification.

What does this mean for you as a member of Real?

  • Free injury assessments and recommendations for follow-up care
  • Injury management, education and prevention
  • Functional rehabilitation
