Nyack College employs Certified Athletic Trainer(s) who are responsible for organizing and administering athletic training and sports medicine related services for all athletes.
The Athletic Trainer will determine when and where athletes will be referred for medical care, diagnosis, and specialized medical services. Athletes will be referred to the Team Physician and must receive clearance by the Team Physician when re-entrance into athletics is sought after an injury is referred. Even if an accepted substitute has been arranged in advance with our medical staff (especially reference to HMO’s), athletes must also receive clearance by the Team Physician in order to return to athletics. Athletes are free to seek “second medical opinions” at their own expense and risk.
Since the Coaches at Nyack College are not involved with medical care and injury assessment, we encourage parents and athletes to communicate directly with the Athletic Trainer(s) when there are questions and concerns. The address and the phone number are listed below.
