Athletic Trainer to Athletic Director – 477

Many ATs have moved on to Administration.  Ross Cooper is an Athletic Director and Athletic Trainer for Detroit County Day Schools.

John Ciecko gets to the point to figure out how he got there and how you can follow Ross's path.

Here are a few key points from Ross Cooper

  • Experienced ATs already perform many of the duties of an Athletic Director
  • You have to be willing to get out of your comfort zone
  • Exposure to multiple leaders and leadership styles is beneficial
  • Self-Reflection is crucial
  • Relationships with each person are important – never know who is watching
  • Be a good listener

Ross also mentioned he took the schedules and policies and made them all digital.  Using a system like Dragonfly MAX can help an Athletic Trainer reduce paper work, streamline the PPE process and improve communication with coaches, parents, and athletes

Female AT Struggles – 131

Sonia Gysland has broken the ranks of professional football; Dawn Stuckey is a head Athletic Trainer at Rice University; Christina Cope is an Athletic Trainer at Klein High School.  All three have teamed up to discuss some of the struggles for female Athletic Trainers.

Thanks for the special contributions from @FemaleATProbs

Top 10 reasons it is so tough being a female athletic trainer:

10. Apparently Spice Girls music is not appropriate pre game music
9. Wearing make up means we’re trying to impress someone
8. Not wearing make up means we’re either sick or very tired (even when we’re neither.)
7. Football/wrestling coaches think we know nothing about football/wrestling
6. Being asked to homecoming, prom, or any other school function is not what we had in mind when we go on dates…

Thanks to Morgan Wilson Music for allowing us to use parts of her songs.

Here is our interview with Dr. David Crumbie.  Since this recording comes from a live conference, some elements are lost due to lack of visual props and some crowd noise can be heard.  The stellar content more than makes up for the difference in sound quality.

Bob Marley allowed us to record and interview the guests of the Memorial Hermann 13th Annual Sports Medicine Update.  In the course of two days we conducted about 24 interviews, streamed live for about 16 hours, and had a lot of help from Dr. Josh Yellen, Dr. Mark Knoblauch, Bill Hale, former student / future Athletic Trainer Jazmin Dozal, and current SAT Sarah Avina.
