    How Sparta Science Helped Maximize a Small Support Staff

    The Challenge

    Injuries have a profound impact on the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being of student-athletes. Chris Fagerness, Head Athletic Trainer at Dordt University, wanted to take a proactive approach in trying to identify ways to help prevent or reduce the risk of injuries.

    While an average Power 5 program has the luxury of more than 30 staff members on their sports medicine and performance teams, Dordt’s athletic department has a very different set of challenges:

    • 600+ Student Athletes

    • 3 Full-Time Athletic Trainers

    • 1 Performance Coach

    “Injuries can have a lasting impact on the student athlete experience, not only physically but mentally and spiritually. We at Dordt sought a more proactive approach to address the problem.”

    Director of Athletics at Dordt University
