6th Annual Bailey-Arnheim Games on Saturday, April 28th hosted by CSULB’s Sports Medicine Club
The “Bailey-Arnheim Games” are held in honor of the late Dan Bailey and Daniel D. Arnheim. This one-day event is a chance for athletic training students to represent their respective schools and programs and apply their knowledge and skills while competing in eight events geared toward preparing them for the BOC Exam. The events will require skills in evaluation of injuries, taping, teamwork, problem solving, and other subjects of Athletic Training Education Program curricula.
In addition to the games, the students will attend and participate in workshops and lectures given by working professionals and educators. Also, they will be given the opportunity to network with professionals and peers without the high registration fees of conventions and conferences.
Please join us for the 6th Annual Bailey-Arnheim Games (BAGs) on Saturday April 28th, 2012 at California State University, Long Beach. For more information about the event and registration, please contact Chelsea McGee at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you all there!
