On behalf of the University of Maryland and its Sports Medicine Department Staff, we would like to take this opportunity to extend our warmest greetings. The University of Maryland Sports Medicine staff will be available to assist in providing the best possible medical care and attention to student-athletes from visiting teams. In preparation for your upcoming journey to College Park, the following information may be of some need to you.
Athletic Training Services:
The athletic training facility serving the sport will be open approximately two (2) hours before the game / contest and for approximately 45 minutes immediately after the game / contest. Each athletic training facility offers a variety of hot and cold modalities, along with hydrotherapy, electrical stimulation, and ultrasound.
A University of Maryland certified athletic trainer will be on-site for all home athletic competitions. A physician will be in attendance for football, men's & women's basketball, men's & women's soccer, field hockey, wrestling, gymnastics, and men's & women's lacrosse games. A physician will be on-call for all other events. The University of Maryland University Health Center will be available Monday - Friday from 8:00am - 5:00pm while school is in session.
Water, ice bags, cups, towels, and biohazard supplies will be provided on your sideline and in your locker room. Emergency supplies, including a Gator / golf cart, an AED, oxygen, crutches, splints, spine board, cervical collars, etc. will also be available should the need arise.
Teams Traveling Without A Certified Athletic Trainer:
If your team is traveling without a certified athletic trainer, advanced notification is appreciated. A written prescription from a physician and/or certified athletic trainer is required for treatment other than ice and heat in such situations. In addition, University of Maryland Sports Medicine personnel will be happy to assist your team with its taping and/or wrapping needs, provided that student-athletes provide their own taping supplies. Please contact the host athletic trainer and/or Darryl Conway, Assistant Athletic Director- Sports Medicine (office- 301-314-2663; email- firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or to make special arrangements.
