The IWU Athletic Training Room will be available to you and your team before and after your athletic contest. We are located on the 1st level of the Shirk Athletic Center. All of the IWU athletic competition fields/courts are with in walking distance to the IWU Athletic Training Room. At your disposal, we have 3 e-stim units, 3 ultrasound units, 2 hydrocullator units, a cold whirlpool and a warm whirlpool. We also have several taping and treatment tables.
If you are not traveling with a Certified Athletic Trainer, we will gladly care for your team. We ask that you please notify us in advance if this is the case and provide your own supplies. Written and signed instructions must accompany all teams not traveling with an ATC.
At each contest, IWU will provide the visiting team with cooler(s) of water, injury ice, biohazard supplies, and an exam table if necessary. We will also have the following emergency equipment on the sideline: splints, crutches, and access to an AED.
An IWU Certified Athletic Trainer will be in attendance at all events.
