Sports & Exercise Science is a two-year program designed to introduce students to careers in sports science and sports medicine. Through various hands-on activities and lab practicals, students will learn about proper technique for weightlifting and resistance training, athletic taping/wrapping procedures, rehabilitative exercise & intervention, functional and sport-specific movement assessments, and cardiovascular fitness testing protocols. In year two, students will apply their training and skills learned in year one through clinical observation and internship opportunities. Students will have the opportunity to design programs and assess clients/athletes through the Lakewood Community Fitness Facility. An emphasis will be placed on preparing for the Physical Therapist Technician/Aide and the ACSM Personal Trainer (CPT) certification exams.
