NSU Athletic Training Majors Aid Sharks, Athletes Across Community
Athletic trainers are everywhere, ready to aid athletes of all ages as they strive toward success. Here at NSU, athletic training majors not only help the Sharks, but they’re also active in the community.

Each year, NSU students are on hand to assist at several local races and athletic events, such as February’s A1A Marathon and March’s Riverwalk Run in Fort Lauderdale. They also volunteer at Camp Katina, the annual gymnastics event for local children hosted by Jason and Katina Taylor. The athletic training majors gain valuable, practical experience while providing community members first-rate medical service.
