Student-athletes at the University of Rhode Island now have a brand new Athletic Training facility to use, in the prevention and rehabilitation of injuries.
Utilizing the former home of kinesiology in the Tootell Athletic Center, head athletic trainer Kim Bissonette and his staff occupied the new training room on Tuesday, March 20.
“It is still in its first phase, but every aspect of the new training room has developed as we envisioned it, and in some cases, exceeded our expectations.” said Bissonette. “The coaches, student-athletes, and staff have all been impressed with our new location. One clear sign that this is a point of pride for URI Athletics is the traffic we get passing through. We’ve had more recruits visit the facility in three weeks than we had in our previous locations over the last five years.”
Will Daniels, a standout for the Rams’ men’s basketball team, summed it up well: “The new training room is big time! It really shows the commitment that the school has made to its student-athletes.”
