The Blue Dragon Sports Medicine Department has a nationwide reputation as being one of the best in the nation, not just among community colleges but at all levels of intercollegiate athletics.
The Blue Dragon Sports Medicine Department enters a new phase to add to an already impressive history.
Not only does this department take care of Blue Dragon student-athletes effectively, but this department has put together quite an extensive list of alumni who have moved onto other athletic programs.
Director of Sports Medicine Ryan Hilty – a former Blue Dragon Sports Medicine student trainer – and Head Athletic Trainer Amanda Beadle will lead a hard-working unit that continually serves Blue Dragon student-athletes with the best of health care.
The Blue Dragon Sports Medicine Department has two fully equipped training rooms on campus.
The Pinnacle Sports Medicine Training Room is located at Gowans Stadium and is utilized by the Blue Dragon football and track and field teams. It is located on the ground level of the west side of Gowans Stadium.
Blue Dragon Sports Medicine will have a new base of operations in the Hutchinson Sports Arena. Expected to open sometime during the 2016-17 athletic season, the new Sports Arena Sports Medicine Office will be much larger than the old office by some 800 square feet.
It will be located in the northeast corner of the new north addition of the Sports Arena, adjacent to the new Blue Dragon Weight Room.
