Why did you become an Athletic Trainer?

I became a student aide my sophomore year of high school and couldn't get enough of the profession from there. I love the atmosphere, the involvement in health care, and the joys of athletic training.

Without sharing any PHI of course, what is your most memorable moment as an Athletic Trainer?

The biggest wins tend to stick in your mind, regarding both games and athletes. I worked a football game a few months ago that I will absolutely never forget. Those first few "big injuries" as an independent AT also stick as well. Mostly I remember the gratitude of so many athletes, college and high school, for supporting them and helping them to succeed. I have 2 "first homerun" softballs on my desk, one collegiate and one high school, from kids who suffered through injuries and found success on the field. Those two balls are more important to me than my two conference championship rings!

What advice would you give others, either in the profession or considering becoming an Athletic Trainer?

Go with your gut instincts. This profession is fueled by various passions: for sport, for health, for success. Each and every AT I know genuinely LOVES athletic training. I speak to a lot of high school kids regarding future goals and professions and I tell them all, "you will know if this is the field for you" and if you love it, stick with it. It's one of the most rewarding fields you will ever experience.

What do you feel people outside of your profession should know about Athletic Trainers?

We do a lot more than distribute water at football games and show people how to work out! We have invested numerous years, and many hours of continuing education, on our professional knowledge and we are much more than what you see on TV.

What is the key to being successful in Athletic Training?

Staying fresh, staying involved, and enjoying your setting, whether its high school outreach, collegiate, professional, industrial or clinical.

Bridging Information Gaps in High Schools

Healthy Roster

This update comes from Rob Mottice, our Customer Success Manager...

This past fall, we were introduced to a high school in Louisiana having trouble properly communicating athlete injury amongst staff within the school's athletic department. The Athletic Trainer found it challenging to find time to compile reports and share them in a timely manner to coaches and athletic directors - making for a tenuous situation within the athletic department. With a variety of people using different non-secured methods of sharing sensitive athlete health information, it was getting harder and harder for everyone to agree on the best way to relay information about the school's athletes. 

As Healthy Roster was integrated into the Athletic Trainer's workflow - the gaps started being bridged. The school's Athletic Trainer started sharing her use of the Healthy Roster App with the staff at the school and started inviting them to join. This gave them access to the info they needed in real time - while keeping the athlete's info safe and secure. Once the school's staff started seeing how easy it was to use Healthy Roster - the situation remedied itself. Athletic Staff had the info they were seeking - instantly. No more reports were needed. Athletes were kept safer. Everyone was in the loop. 

Does this situation sound familiar? If you are logging injuries for your athletes - is this information being relayed to the parents/coaches in a safe and secure way? Healthy Roster makes it simple and safe. Let us know how we can help!

Why did you become an Athletic Trainer/Sports Medicine Director?

Long story short, I injured my wrist in high school and didn't have an athletic trainer in my high school so I saw my primary care. They took an X-ray and prescribed PT. I went on to play field hockey in college and when my athletic trainer evaluated it, he referred me to our team Orthopedist who diagnosed me with a scaphoid non-union. I was so frustrated that it was missed and ended up requiring surgery. After working with my athletic trainers rehabbing my wrist, I started work I with them for my work study job and got hooked! I knew going into college that I loved science and medicine, helping people and athletics, so the field was a perfect match.


Without sharing any Patient Health Information, what is your most memorable moment as an Athletic Trainer?

Watching a student's time back on the court after a significant tibia-fibula fracture dislocation. I was so proud of their hard work in rehab, determination and fearlessness.


What advice would you give others, either currently in the profession or considering becoming an Athletic Trainer?

Have fun and keep your sense of humor. There will be hard days and frustrating times but if the athletes see you loving what you do, it builds their confidence and makes their struggle seem a bit easier to swallow. And don't be afraid to admit when you don't know - use your resources (doctors, ATs, PTs, etc)!


What do you feel people outside of your profession should know about your profession?

We are qualified medical professionals and we are great resources for our athletes - both for their injuries and for their doctors for further insight into what is going on with an athlete.


What is the key to being successful in the world of athletic training and sports medicine?


#1 Balance. Balance is something I'm admittedly still working on. It's hard to leave our work at the office, especially when things aren't going how you would like.  And #2 is being a lifelong learner. Our field changes so rapidly that staying on top of those changes is important. And it goes back to using your resources and learning from experiences and the people around you and especially what didn't go well.

 

All-Star Athletic Trainer: Kenny Wilka

Healthy Roster

We're excited to introduce you to our first AT of the Month post! This is our chance to highlight some of the great Athletic Trainers using Healthy Roster.

Today, let us introduce you to our July AT of the Month:

Kenny Wilka

Sports Med Director
UW Parkside

Currently serving as Sports Medicine Director at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, Kenny Wilka received his Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Sport Science - Athletic Training from Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska in 1999 and his Masters of Education in Curriculum Development from Concordia University in Mequon, Wisconsin in 2004.

We asked Kenny about his experiences and advice as an athletic trainer and are excited to share his responses:


Why did you become an Athletic Trainer/Sports Medicine Director?

Athletic Training brought two of my passions together, sports and helping others. There is a physicality and intellectual component to this profession that makes me feel accomplished at the end of the day.


Without sharing any Patient Health Information, what is your most memorable moment as an Athletic Trainer?

Every time one of my athletes returns from injury is memorable. There are three athletes over the past 15 plus years that have battled through several significant injuries that brought a smile to my face and worry to my heart when they returned to full participation.


What advice would you give others, either currently in the profession or considering becoming an Athletic Trainer?

When I speak to athletic training students and young professionals I always start off with, “the athletic training profession requires passion.” I explain when deciding to become an athletic trainer, passion is very important because there will be long hours, emotional drain and a moderate salary. Long hours is self-explanatory, except that we typically work early in the morning or late into the night. Emotional drain: as an athletic trainer you build relationships/bonds with your athletes. Empathy is needed when working with athletes going through the stress of injury and recovery. Athletic trainers experience some of the athlete’s emotional ups and downs. In terms of moderate salary, I explain you will not become wealthy as an athletic trainer, but you will be able to support a family.  If you think athletic training is cool or an entry profession, you should look for a different path, you will burn out within 3-5 years.


What do you feel people outside of your profession should know about your profession?

We are healthcare professionals who care for the health and safety of our athletes, your sons or daughters.  Athletic trainers are skilled individuals who work to prevent, evaluate, manage and rehabilitate injuries.


What is the key to being successful in the world of athletic training and sports medicine?

Balance between your personal life and professional life.  It is ok to say no and it’s ok to go home. Never stop learning, seek out knowledge.
