Inside Athletics

 

Defiance College Sports Medicine features some of the finest facilities in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference and NCAA Division III.  

After recent renovations were completed to the athletic facilities on the campus of Defiance College, Yellow Jackets student-athletes now have access to one of the most comprehensive departments in the region. 

Boasting three separate locations within the Defiance Athletics sports complex, the Athletic Training team makes sure the student-athletes here at Defiance College receive the best treatment possible.

The DC Athletic Training main office is located on the south side of the Karl H. Weaner Community Center. The staff also works out of athletic training rooms located within Justin F. Coressel Stadium, as well as the Duane C. Hocking Athletic Training room within the new George M. Smart Athletic Center.

Under the direction of Head Athletic Trainer Kevin Tong and Associate Athletic Trainer Kathleen Westfall, Defiance College Athletic Training works tirelessly to make sure our student-athletes receive the highest level of care possible. 

Defiance also features a Master's Athletic Training program that will begin in 2016. 

The staff also features a comprehensive medical team that features physicians in a variety of medical specialties.
