Northview High School has decided to create a full-time athletic trainer (AT) position for the 2017-18 school year. In 2013, Covina Valley Unified became the first school district client of ATvantage LLC when they agreed to allow ATvantage to provide contract athletic trainers for the athletes at Northview. The contract originally began with 200 hours of athletic training services for the school year. Four years later, Northview has proven they recognize the importance of an athletic trainer by creating a full-time position.
“I believe the overall purpose of ATvanatge is to provide high schools with ATs in hopes of the schools creating full-time opportunities for the profession,” Daniel Rangel, the ATvantage contract athletic trainer placed at Northview High School, stated. “I can say with confidence that the company did fulfill its purpose.”
ATvantage’s work may be finished at Northview, but the company moves forward with its mission to make this a reality at more school districts. “Our passion for athletic training is why we do what we do and helping to create positions that did not exist prior to our involvement is a true testament to that,” Alisha Pennington, owner of ATvantage, said.
ATvantage Athletic Training, a service of ATvantage LLC, is leading the way in athletic training contract services and providing a risk management solution for school athletic departments. ATvantage works alongside their clients to provide uniquely catered packages to place certified and verified athletic trainers to their site(s) based on their needs and compatibility. ATvantage, LLC promotes athletic trainers as health care professionals and educates clients about their expertise. In doing so, ATvantage encourages clients to provide proper compensation and healthy work environments.
