Athletic Training Mission Statement
The mission of athletic training at Long Beach City College is to optimize health and fitness in our community college athletes in order to enable student athletes to reach their full potential in sport and compete at the highest level possible. In collaboration with our team physician and other health care professionals our practice encompasses the prevention, examination and diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of emergent, acute, subacute and chronic neuromusculoskeletal conditions and certain medical conditions in order to minimize subsequent participation. We strive to understand cultural differences while demonstrating knowledge, attitudes, behaviors and skills necessary to work respectfully and effectively with diverse populations. We act as an advocate of our student athletes, while demonstrating honesty, integrity, exhibiting compassion and empathy.
The Long Beach City College athletic training staff is composed of one full-time certified athletic trainer and three part-time certified athletic trainers. Staff members are responsible for the coverage of our 17 athletic teams.
Athletic Treatment Center
Location: Two entrances grace the treatment center. One from the women’s locker room, the second can be located at the south side of the Q-building between the swimming pool and vending machines.
