Eleven representatives from Ohlone College's Athletic Trainer program joined 450 Northern California High School students as they descended on Oracle Arena, home of the Golden State Warriors. The high school students were there to participate in a seminar for the National High School Sports Medicine Honor Society, now in its fourth year. The Ohlone students joined the fray to serve as lab facilitators at various stations throughout the arena. The high school students attended workshops on sport-related injuries and treatment, participated in various activities related to the field of sports medicine, and attended lectures from members of the Oakland Raiders medical staff.
Ohlone's program in sports medicine, Kinesiology, prepares students with the skills, knowledge and experience to pursue careers in a variety of health and fitness professions and provides a foundation for advanced degrees. Typical employment opportunities in the field include athletic training, coaching, fitness instruction, as well as management of recreation and athletic centers. With an Associate Degree for Transfer, or ADT, Ohlone students are guaranteed transfer to a CSU to pursue their advanced degree.
