Job Details

Position Type: Full Time

Education Level: Athletic Trainer

Job Shift: Day/Flexible

Travel: Local

Job Category: Health Care


Essential Functions and Job Responsibilities:

The Athletic Trainer will be assigned specifically to designated units at the brigade (BDE), battalion (BN), or company (CO) level. The Athletic Trainer's services may be provided in the following locations: fitness centers/gyms, BDE/BN/CO or administrative areas, outdoors, ranges, field training environments, and at the Soldier Performance Readiness Center (SPRC). The work includes providing forward musculoskeletal (MSK) care, early medical intervention, injury prevention (IP), and performance optimization services. Any medical treatment provided by the Athletic Trainer is subject to the supervision of a privileged government healthcare provider. The location for the performance of duty is under the control and direction of the resourced unit BDE Commander in coordination with the Installation Assistant Contracting Officer Representative (ACOR).


Most work will be performed in a military training environment (i.e., fitness centers/gyms, BDE/BN/CO or administrative areas, outdoors, ranges, field training environments, and at the SPRC). The Athletic Trainer shall not be deployed outside of the Continental United States (OCONUS) or to support long-duration training events in remote locations). The Athletic Trainer will be required to observe BDE and below (i.e., BN, CO, platoon, squad, team) specific training events (e.g., shooting range, obstacle courses, combative training areas). The Athletic Trainer must be physically able to hike austere environments and terrain (i.e., rocky, no running water, no shelter, no bathroom, no climate control, inclement weather, loud, smoky) while carrying their own backpack with necessary supplies on occasion (<20% of the time). Providing forward MSK care in the training environment, outside of the clinical setting, minimizes lost training time and ensures early identification of injuries. Well-trained, combat-ready Soldiers are best produced by allocating healthcare assets that facilitate the early identification and management of MSK injuries, prevention of injuries, and optimization of physical performance.


Have a current Basic Life Support (BLS) certification for Healthcare Providers from the American Heart Association or the American Red Cross with Automated External Defibrillators (AED) certification. Certification cards must display the American Heart Association, the American Red Cross emblem.

Ability to read, write, and speak English to effectively communicate with trainees, staff, and other ATs.

Demonstrate sufficient initiative, interpersonal relationship skills, and social sensitivity such that they can relate to a variety of Soldiers from diverse backgrounds.

Ability to operate a computer utilizing Microsoft applications, such as Word, Excel.

Participate in Government-based education and in-service training as mandated by the local installation.

Participate in continuing education programs to meet the requirements for their AT license or certification renewals.


Maintain current certification/licensing requirements as required by the role and the applicable state board of the AT. ATs are required to keep their CAF up to date with license/certification documentation.


Minimum Qualifications:

  • Degree: Bachelor's Degree in a related field such as Exercise Science, Kinesiology, Sports Medicine, etc. from an accredited university.
  • Education: Graduate from a college or university accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).

    • National Provider Identifier (NPI).
  • Experience: Two years of relevant Athletic Trainer work experience within the last five years. Demonstrate experience working with high school, collegiate, or professional sports, military, performing arts, and/or occupational health.
    • Relevant experience developing and executing task and environment-specific functional injury control and health/well-being programs for groups of athletes.
    • Ability to demonstrate sound management qualities, past staff administration or management preferred.
  • Citizenship: U.S. citizenship (copy of your birth certificate or naturalization papers)
  • Credentialing: Current physical and immunizations
  • Security: Ability to pass a background check and drug screen.


Preferred Qualifications

  • Previous experience working with the military population.

  • Flexible Hours of Performance: The AT will be responsible for conducting business Monday through Friday, except federal holidays or when the Government facility is closed due to local or national emergencies, administrative closings, or similar Government directed facility closings. Services, as scheduled, may occur outside of normal hours of operation and on weekends due to varying BDE schedules and locations.
  • Flexible Schedule: Schedules are subject to change due to training events/schedules, exodus, holidays, and unexpected events. Some workdays may be less or greater than eight hours. The Athletic Trainers are expected to work a 40-hour workweek and/or 80-hours within a two-week period to accommodate training schedules. No overtime payment is authorized.
