The camp will include one-on-one instruction in taping and wrapping techniques, behind the scenes tours of athletic facilities on and off campus. Additional topics to be covered include wound care, injury prevention, common injuries, concussions, heat illnesses, environmental concerns, nutrition, performance enhancement, and much more!
