The NCSHOF, in partnership with the North Carolina Athletic Trainers’ Association, Museum of the Albemarle and Sentara Albemarle Medical Center will open a display in recognition of athletic trainers.

Athletic Trainers…who are they? What do they do? What is the difference between athletic trainers and personal trainers? All of these questions and more will be answered in an exciting display of knowledge and history of athletic training in North Carolina. 

The North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame, in partnership with the North Carolina Athletic Trainers’ Association, Museum of the Albemarle and Sentara Albemarle Medical Center will open a display in recognition of the athletic trainers who have been providing health care and safety for athletes since 1950. 

This display will open with a ribbon cutting and reception on Monday, July 10th and remain at the Museum of the Albemarle until August 5th, and will be located on the lobby level. 

The display will focus on three areas:

  1. Education on the field of athletic training and recognize local athletic trainers and sports medicine professionals.
  2. Provide information on catastrophic and life altering injuries.
  3. Though approximately 2 percent of all collegiate athletes from the NCAA become professional athletes, there are other options to being on the frontline of sports, including working as licensed athletic trainers.

The North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame, North Carolina Athletic Trainers Association and Sentara Albemarle Medical Center welcome everyone to see this display and to contact the North Carolina Athletic Trainers’ Association for information on a rewarding career as an athletic trainer at ncathletictrainer.org.
