2013 in Review on the Blog

December 27, 2013

Here we are closing in all on the end of the 2013 year! Can you believe it’s here already? As we prepare to look forward to 2014, I’m going to take a couple of minutes to look back at 2013 here at Athletic Training and Fitness.

The year started with an article about Anterior Knee pain in the female athlete. Then we explored the hips as we want to attack that knee pain! As we moved into February, we explored the idea of youth playing football and cheerleading injuries. These topics would come back up again later! March was National Athletic Training Month so we explored a few topics related to the profession. April found us discussing sports emergencies and we took an initial look at the California licensure issue. May furthered that discussion as the feud continued to heat up. The CPTA posted a “fact sheet” which I responded to with true facts. In June, I posted about my experiences in Tampa for graduate school. Then there was a bit of a lull on the blog, but we came back to life in September. More athletic training topics including proper terminology and entry-level masters degrees in athletic training. November had an Athletic Trainer’s Thanksgiving and December has included a post about Why?

As social media has continued to explode, we have seen many previous posts get retweeted and shared on Facebook. My article, Ten Reasons Your School Needs an Athletic Trainer, exploded on social media again with thousands of views in just a matter of days.

It’s been a great 2013. And I can’t wait for another exciting year in 2014 here on the blog!
