About the Athletic Training Club
The Athletic Training Club is an association supplemental to the Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) here at UW – Oshkosh. Our purpose is to bring the student body of the program together and promote the profession of Athletic Training while helping out the community. The officers this year consist of seniors Mike Piazza and Evan Schmidt, and juniors Aimee Ostrander and Nicole Reith.
At the Wisconsin Athletic Trainer’s Association (WATA) state symposium last April, Dalton Venden, Steve Klein, Mike Piazza and Evan Schmidt managed to take first place while representing UW Oshkosh at the state Quiz Bowl. The Quiz Bowl is a trivia contest in the form of “Athletic Training Jeopardy” in which every Athletic Training Education Program in the state is represented by a team of four. The team clinched the win with the final question “What is the term for the rapid expansion and contraction of microscopic gas bubbles surrounding the tissues during a therapeutic ultrasound treatment?” in which they answered “Unstable Cavitation.” This spring, the team will progress to the regional level and compete against the winners of five other states in GLATA at our Winter Symposium.
Every year, March is designated as NATM with a goal of promoting our profession to a wider audience, and the theme for March 2013 is “Every Body Needs an Athletic Trainer.”
