on-going, professional development
to maintain their certification and if
you can help underwrite the cost or
some of it, this would be a great way
of showing your support.
Beyond support, it is also vital that
good communication exists between
yourself and your athletic trainer and
this aspect really has to be a two-way
street. If a major injury has occurred,
for example, your athletic trainer
has to keep you in the loop. You have
to be proactive and also inform the
principal and superintendent so that
they are not blindsided.
On your end, you need to provide
the athletic trainer with any schedule
changes for games and practice
sessions, due dates for budget
requests, and all details related
to their position. Your part has to
be done in an efficient, timely, and
professional manner so that an
element of trust is established.
After having demonstrated support
and developing a sound basis for
communication, actual collaboration
can be achieved. This is where both
of you should be involved in creating
protocols and procedures involving
the reporting of athletic injuries,
prevention techniques, the stages
of rehabilitation, and everything
pertaining to athletic training efforts
for your athletes, teams, and program.
For the process of collaboration,
the following hints should help.
Make sure that you revise and
perhaps develop new protocols to
cover any new developments. A good,
recent example was the emergence
of COVID-19 which obviously needed
new guidelines and procedures since
nothing existed to help with this
novel health issue. And over the last
few years, the same could be said
concerning MRSA and the most recent
research involving concussions.
Publish any new guidelines,
procedures, and protocols on athletic
department letterhead which includes
both your and the athletic trainer's
signature. This step provides more
weight and makes the document
much more official, which is important
for it to be taken seriously.
Annually evaluate the athletic
training program. This analysis
should be undertaken jointly by both
parties and should be conducted
in the same manner as all other
aspects of the athletic program. You
want to ask yourself in an honest
and straight-forward manner, " What
was done well, and what could be
improved? " With contributions from
both yourself and the athletic trainer,
real progress can be made.
Develop a three-year strategic plan
based upon your evaluation. This is a
significant step because it represents
more than just talk. It is an actual
plan for meaningful action and it is a
document by which you judge success.
It is important to realize that
these three aspects of support,
communication, and collaboration
are all intertwined. In order to
collaborate, for example, you have to
communicate effectively. When you
collaborate, this is a strong indicator
of support. They are all necessary
and work together to develop a
good working relationship. And this
relationship is essential for the health
and safety of your student-athletes.

Airless Spraying NORDOT Adhesives
®
THE GOLD STANDARD in Turf Adhesives
There's a growing trend to pre-fab installations and bond large areas of
turf by airless spraying NORDOT® Adhesives directly from a portable
55-gallon drum. Oppositely, it's slower and more costly to install

by otherwise reliable methods of troweling, squeegee or glue box.
NORDOT® airless spray adhesives are one-part, high " green strength "
(grab), solvent-based moisture-cured urethanes. They're highly valued
for their negligible overspray, minimal airborne adhesive mist and
faster, more efficient application that reduces labor costs. Plus, they can
be applied at any temperature the installer can work, from sub-freezing
to intense desert heat, have outstanding water resistance and superior
long-term durability in all types of climates worldwide.
