Southern Vermont College will provide an Athletic Trainer on side 1 ½ to 2 hours prior to a home event. Our Athletic Training Room consists of the following modalities: hydrocollator, ice, electrical stimulation, and ultrasound. All home events outside of the Field House will contain a satellite Athletic Training facility including a treatment table, ice, and emergency medical equipment. Teams traveling with an Athletic Trainer are welcome to use the modalities or equipment located at our facilities. We ask that visiting teams without an Athletic Trainer bring a stocked medical kit for taping needs and a list of athletes with their necessary treatments. If athletes require specialized medical care please call in advance.

Visiting teams will be provided with water, ice, cups and towels for athletic events. If visiting teams wish to utilize a locker room for showering, please bring your own towels.

Southern Vermont College will travel without an Athletic Trainer in most instances. A stocked medical kit and a list of current treatments will be included. The head coach will also have a binder with all participating players emergency contact information if the situation arises. If there are any special requests, I will call ahead of time.

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely, 

Ashley Hodges MS, ATC
Assistant Director of Athletics & Athletic Trainer
Southern Vermont College
