We re-open again from 2:30p.m. - 7:00p.m. for coverage of practice(s) and competition(s). Weekend hours are per athletic practice and competition. If you need to have an injury evaluated, please see the certified athletic trainers during the available morning times as listed above.

  

IWU Athletic Training Room

The IWU Athletic Training Room is a 2,000 square foot area with all of the amenities necessary for providing health care for athletes in any sport.  Complete with five taping tables and eight treatment tables the main Athletic Training Room provides a great space for rehab, pre and post-practice treatments and all other services necessary to ensure the student-athletes will be able to safely and functionally return to the field/court. A second Athletic Training Room was completed in 2015 and serves as a great extra space for additional treatments and Athletic Training services. Each Athletic Training Room has a separate wet room that contains two whirlpools with access for either hot or cold water, along with rehabilitation areas complete with a small assortment of free weights, exercise bands, exercise balls, and other rehabilitation equipment.
