The ALATA Hall of Fame honors athletic trainers who have distinguished themselves throughout the years in the service of athletic training in Alabama. The athletic trainer is an allied healthcare provider who specializes in athletics healthcare. In cooperation with physicians and other allied health personnel, the athletic trainer functions as an integral member of the athletic healthcare team in secondary schools, colleges and universities, sports medicine clinics, professional sports programs, and other athletic healthcare settings.

 

As specialists in the prevention, recognition, management and rehabilitation of injuries incurred by athletes, athletic trainers evaluate, administer immediate emergency care, minimize the athlete's reaction to injury, and maximize their physical status for return to competition. Using knowledge of each athlete's injuries and the factors influencing them, the athletic trainer - with the attending family or team physician - develops a treatment program based on medical, exercise and sports sciences.
