REQUEST ATHLETIC TRAINING SERVICES
The Request Athletic Training Services Page where individuals looking for athletic training services may submit their requests. It should be noted that once these requests are submitted, they are posted to the MATA List Serv which goes out to the athletic trainers within the state of Maryland. Simply submitting the form DOES NOT GUARANTEE that an athletic trainer will respond to your request. At least two weeks notice is generally recommended for PRN service requests, and requests are sent out weekly on Mondays.
Here are some suggestions for improving the likelihood of securing an athletic trainer for your event.
• The common going rate for athletic training services is between $40 to $50 an hour
• Provide accurate means to contact you directly
• Please be specific as to the needs of your event:
Will you be needing athletic training services or just first aid services
How many athletes / teams will be present
How long will the event last
Will the athletic trainer be required to provide their own supplies, will they be reimbursed for using their supplies or will supplies be provided for them
Will food be provided
How will the athletic trainer be paid – cash at the end of the day, check at the end of the day, or paid at a later date
The MATA will be released from all harm and will not be held liable for any Athletic Trainer providing care at the event. It is the company and/or employers sole responsibility to check if the ATC you hire is working under a current license and within their E&T protocol. By posting this event the company and/or employer takes full responsibility that there is an acceptable Athletic Trainer to athlete ratio, AED on site, and an Emergency Action Plan in place and reviewed with all appropriate staff prior to the start of the activity and the Athletic Trainer is compensated at a fair and marketable wage.
