The ATR is committed to the health and safety of every athlete.  We provide educational opportunities for coaches to help them recognize common injuries and conditions, provide first aid, and manage emergency situations.

If you are a coach looking to complete your authorization, need to renew certifications, or just interested in evidence-based sports medicine topics – check out the links on this page.

Coaching Authorization

If you are a new coach that needs to fulfill taping requirements to gain certification, or if you need to re-certify your coaching authorization, a certified athletic trainer will be available to help you refine your taping skills.      

Call 515-964-5000 to schedule a time to fulfill your taping requirement.

CPR/AED/First Aid Training

In the event of an emergency, it is critical that there are trained first responders on scene.  Since there is not always an athletic trainer at practices and events, the coaches should be prepared to handle an emergency situation.

Call 515-964-5000 to set up a First Aid/CPR/AED training session.  

An instructor can come to your place of business, or your group can come to our office.  In addition, The ATR hosts monthly certification classes on an individual basis.  Class size is limited so call or register online by clicking the links below.


A concussion is an injury to the brain caused by rapid movement of the brain against the internal wall of the skull.  This can be caused by a direct blow to the head: by a ball, the ground, or another athlete.  Or by a hit to the body, which causes rapid movement of the head and neck.

Each concussion is unique and needs to be treated on an individual basis.  Please follow the link below for more information on signs/symptoms, when additional medical care is needed, and how to handle a concussed athlete at home.

If you suspect that your son or daughter has a concussion, have them evaluated by a provider who specializes in concussion evaluation and management.  Call us at 515-964-5000 to be evaluated and for an individualized plan to return your son or daughter back to participation.

Injury Prevention
The best way to keep an athlete on the field is to prevent the injury from occurring.  One of the best tools to determine what is needed to prevent injury is to be tested using a Functional Movement Screen.  A series of movement patterns are used to identify compensations that an athlete makes when performing these movements.  Those compensations are evaluated and a program is designed for each individual athlete to correct muscular and structural imbalances, relax tight muscles, strengthen underused muscles, and improve muscular efficiency – thus, reducing injury risk.

Call 515-964-5000 to schedule a 30 minute consult and Functional Movement Screen.  We will provide you with individualized information to increase athletic performance and reduce injury risk.

Treatment of Acute Injury
If your son or daughter has experienced an injury call 515-964-5000 to schedule an orthopedic injury evaluation.
