    Sparta Science at Dordt University: A Case Study

    Dordt University in Sioux Center Iowa boasts an NAIA athletics program with over 600 student athletes, but only one Performance Coach and three Athletic Trainers. Sparta Science enabled Dordt to institute a thorough and effective injury prevention program by quickly providing the limited staff with the information they needed to best protect their student-athletes.

    Using a triage system, Dordt University staff was able to monitor the health of their athletes and prioritize at-risk athletes while still addressing the entire program’s performance needs. Dordt’s team leaned on the Sparta Science Customer Success resources to establish best practices and opportunities for optimization.
