Head Coach Jeff “CJ” Werneke Third Season

Jeff “CJ” Werneke is set to begin his third season at the helm of the Rutgers women’s volleyball program. After an extremely successful stint at Fairfield, Werneke arrived ‘On the Banks’ in 2008 with hopes of building a strong volleyball foundation at Rutgers. He has gotten to great start in building that foundation as his first two full recruiting classes were honored by PrepVolleyball.com, giving the Scarlet Knights an Honorable Mention for its 2010 recruiting class and a high honorable mention for its 2009 squad. Last season, Rutgers finished with a 10-19 record. RU’s 10 wins equals the total amount of victories the squad had in the three previous seasons combined. RU also won its first tournament title since the 2004 Patriot Invitational when it captured the Bucknell Invitational Title. In his first season at RU, Werneke led an extremely young Scarlet Knights squad through a demanding schedule that included 17 road games and 14 BIG EAST contests. Although the Scarlet Knights garnered only two wins on the year, the experience that the youthful squad gained could prove to be vastly important in the future. Prior to his first season as head coach at Rutgers, Werneke had an extremely successful tenure at Fairfield where he left as the school’s all-time winningest coach. In 2007, Werneke broke the 100-win plateau for his career and currently has a 113-107 overall record. He was named the 2006 and 2007 MAAC Coach of the Year, and led the Stags to four consecutive MAAC regular season titles. In 2007, Fairfield finished with a 21-13 overall record and a 17-1 mark in conference play. Werneke also coached 11 All-MAAC honorees, two MAAC Rookies of the Year, a MAAC Offensive Player of the Year and back-to back Setters of the Year while with the Stags.

Before heading to Fairfield, Werneke served as an assistant coach at Rutgers from 1999-2001 under Anne Leonard-House. While an assistant at Rutgers, Werneke served as the recruiting coordinator, handled all scouting, game day operations and travel operations. Werneke has also coached at East Tennessee State, Stamford and the University of Montevallo. Werneke married the former Jennifer Smith on January 20, 2007. The Wernekes are the proud parents of two children – Rylie and Noah.

Assistant Coach Jason Donnelly Third Season

Jason Donnelly begins his third year as an assistant coach of the Rutgers volleyball program. In his first two years, Donnelly has played a vital role in bringing in highly-touted recruiting classes “On the Banks.” PrepVolleyball.com gave the Scarlet Knights an Honorable Mention for its 2010 recruiting class and a high honorable mention for its 2009 squad. Last season, Donnelly helped lead Rutgers to a 10-19 record. RU’s 10 wins equals the total amount of victories the squad had in the three previous seasons combined. RU also won its first tournament title since the 2004 Patriot Invitational when it won the Bucknell Invitational Title. In his first season at Rutgers, Donnelly’s commitment to the program was evident as the entire staff looks to continue building a strong volleyball foundation at Rutgers. Prior to his arrival at RU, Donnelly spent the 12 years coaching at Laguna Blanca School in Santa Barbara, Calif. Additionally, Donnelly was the head coach for the very successful Santa Barbara Volleyball Club for 10 seasons. Donnelly’s 2007 team participated in the American Division of the Junior Olympics in Minneapolis, Minn. “Jason’s energy and passion for the game will only help our program achieve what we are capable of,” said head coach CJ Werneke. “I am positive that his contributions both on and off the court will impact our program greatly.” Donnelly, who graduated with a psychology degree from University of the Pacific in 1996, played four years of Division I men’s volleyball for the Tigers. While at Laguna Blanca, Donnelly led the boy’s volleyball program to seven Condor League titles. As the girl’s coach, Donnelly won six Condor League titles and was honored with the High School Coach of the Year award by the Santa Barbara Roundtable in 2006. His duties included scheduling, hiring of coaches, practice planning and game management. “Jason is a great coach who has played and taught at the highest level and his attention to detail and preparation will only enhance what we are building here at Rutgers,” said Werneke. “The most important thing is that we want to surround our program with good people and I know we have done that with the addition of Jason to our staff.”

Assistant Coach Lindsey Lee Third Season

Lindsey Lee enters her third season ‘On the Banks’ after a decorated career playing under head coach CJ Werneke at Fairfield University. In just two years at Rutgers, Lee has assisted the Rutgers volleyball program in all aspects. With her help, Rutgers has brought in two highly-touted recruiting classes “On the Banks.” PrepVolleyball. com gave the Scarlet Knights an Honorable Mention for its 2010 recruiting class and a high honorable mention for its 2009 squad. Last season, Lee helped lead Rutgers to a 10-19 record. RU’s 10 wins equals the total amount of victories the squad had in the three previous seasons combined. RU also won its first tournament title since the 2004 Patriot Invitational when it took the Bucknell Invitational Title. Lee was a four-year standout at the outside hitter position for Fairfield. The Hilo, Hawaii native was the MAAC Rookie of the Year and named first team all-conference in 2004. During her junior campaign, Lee was named the MAAC Offensive Player of the Year and was, again, a first team all-conference selection. She ended her career as the Stags record holder in both digs (1,647) and digs per game (3.88). She was only the fifth player in school history to record 1,000 kills and 1,000 digs. Additionally, Lee has gained valuable coaching experience working with girls, ages 12-17, at Nike Volleyball Camps in Fairfield, Conn. She has also worked with junior players in her hometown of Hilo. support staff

2010 SEASON OUTLOOK Coming off its most successful season in five years, the Rutgers volleyball team is excited to get its 2010 season underway. The Scarlet Knights return five regular starters, including their leader in kills (Caitlin Saxton), assists (Stephanie Zielinski) and total blocks (Hannah Curtis) from a 2009 squad whose 10 wins equaled the total amount of victories from the three previous seasons combined. With the five returning starters and depth that comes from back-to-back nationally recognized recruiting classes, Rutgers’ 2010 squad will enter the season with high expectations. “Without question, our goal is to reach the BIG EAST Tournament this year,” said head coach CJ Werneke. “We’re in year three as a staff and we feel that with the returners who have had two years in our system, and the talented newcomers we’ve added, that we have a great mix of experience and youth. We’re going to have some depth, we’re going to have some experienced players and this is a year that we anticipate making a big jump not only within the conference but outside of the conference as well. “

Outside Hitters The outside hitter position will be one of the strengths for RU in 2010. The Scarlet Knights return an experienced core of outside hitters and welcome several newcomers who will also compete for time at the position. “We love the depth at this position,” said Werneke. “We have seven people vying for two spots and that makes for a really competitive situation.” Leading the way at the outside hitter positions will be seniors Caitlin Saxton (Encintas, Calif.) and Emma Chrystal (Portage, Mich.). Saxton led the 2009 squad in kills (380), attacks (1155) and aces (31) while Chrystal ranked in the top-four in every major statistical category. “We have Caitlin and Emma who will be in that position for the third year,” Werneke said. “We’re expecting them to continue their improvement and we’ll rely on their senior leadership and competitive nature.” Also returning for the Scarlet Knights are Katie Groff (York, Pa.) and Kylie Orr (Kettering, Ohio), who both saw action in 2009. “Katie is another senior who brings some experience and

came on late last year and played some big matches for us,” Werneke said. “Then we’ve got Kylie who was hampered with some injuries last year and kind of got thrown into the fire a little bit as a freshman, but moving forward we’re looking forward to her accelerating her game and being more of a contributor for us this year.” Rounding out the potential outside hitters is a trio of highly touted freshmen: Brittany Bozzini (Saratoga, Calif.), Tiffany Regmund (College Station, Texas) and Mariah Horvath (Poway, Calif.). “We love having four experienced players and then three youthful players that bring in new energy and new skill level to that position,” Werneke said. “That’s very exciting to us as a coaching staff.” Setters Setting up the Scarlet Knights’ attack will be a pair of players who saw action last season; sophomore Stephanie Zielinski (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) and junior Kallie Pence (College Station, Texas).

Alex Jones (Chesapeake, Va.). “Hannah and Alex got a lot of experience last year,” Werneke said. “They’ve continued to improve year-to-year and have become players we are going to rely on heavily.” Curtis and Jones ranked first and second on the team in blocks last season and showed their all-around game by both being among the top-four respectively, in kills and attack percentage. Adding depth to the middle blocker position will be senior Lauren Voss (Hartland, Wis.) and freshman Sheridan Taylor (Manhattan Beach, Ca.). “Lauren Voss also plays and has seen time at that position and then you add Sheridan for four true middles, which we’ve never had in our program,” Werneke said. “Our staff loves having four girls who have a great deal of experience and can really play that position on any given day, any given match.” Libero/Defensive Specialist

Zielinski led the team in assists last year as a freshman totaling an impressive 766 assists for an 8.42 A/S average, while Pence ranked second on the team with 277 sets for a 5.13 A/S average. “We’ve got two kids who competed all last year in Kallie Pence and Stephanie Zalinski, so again it’s going to be a battle,” Werneke said. “It’ll probably be a match-to-match type of thing about who’s going to start. Stephanie got a lot of experience as a freshman and Kallie is going to be a junior so we feel pretty confident in those two running our offense and running our court. “ Middle Blockers

Leading the defensive charge for the Scarlet Knights will be a pair of experienced middle blockers; junior Hannah Curtis (Wasilla, Alaska) and sophomore

One of the questions facing Rutgers at the start of the 2010 season is who will step up and take the place of Jamie Godfrey in the libero position. Entering the fall, sophomore Kelsey Ross (Orinda, Calif.) appears to be the frontrunner, but Coach Werneke says the position is up for grabs. “We don’t have a true libero. Kelsey Ross converted from outside to the defensive specialist for us. As a freshman, she didn’t get to see a lot of playing time with a senior ahead of her but she had a good spring and is gaining experience,” Werneke said. “Then after that there are a lot of players who can play that position. When you have experienced volleyball players like we do now in our program it could be anyone from one of the incoming freshman to Kallie to Caitlin, Emma, Katie, any number of people. That’s one of the positions where we could see a role by committee possibly, but that’s what


we’ll see after preseason - who wants that position and who’s going to really fight for it. “ Schedule The Scarlet Knights will be tested by a difficult schedule which features six teams (Long Beach State, George Mason, TCU, Louisville, Cincinnati and Notre Dame) that advanced to the NCAA Tournament in 2009. “We feel that it’s a competitive schedule, one that we’re excited about,” Werneke said. “It’s nice to have 12 of our 28 matches at home this year. BIG EAST wise we have eight home matches and that hasn’t happened since our staff has been here. There is nothing like the confines of your home gym, home court advantage so to speak, and we’re looking forward to holding court and winning most of those matches at home.” RU will compete in four multi-team tournaments prior to BIG EAST play, including hosting a tournament for the first time since 2005. Rutgers opens its BIG EAST schedule during the final weekend of September with road contests against the two teams that met in the 2009 BIG EAST Championship finals. The Scarlet Knights will battle defending champion Louisville on Saturday (Sept. 25) and runner-up Cincinnati on Sunday (Sept. 26).

The Scarlet Knights finish regular-season play with another four-game home stand where they will battle Marquette (Nov. 6), Syracuse (Nov. 7), defending BIG EAST regular-season Champion Notre Dame (Nov. 13) and DePaul (Nov. 14). The 2010 BIG EAST Championships will take place Nov. 19-21 at Fitzgerald Field House located on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh. Despite the difficult schedule Werneke is confident that his team has what it takes to succeed this year. “Every position has been a three year culmination of getting to this point. This is where we wanted to be in year three experienced having our returners two years into our system and having incoming freshmen with experience who can add depth, energy and life to the program,” Werneke said. “As a coaching staff, personnel wise, we’re exactly where we want to be. Everything’s found a place for us like we thought it would and now it’s just going out there putting in the work, competing and putting ourselves in the best positions to win.”

The Scarlet Knights return home to the College Ave. Gym for a five-match home stand where they will face Pittsburgh (Oct. 1), West Virginia (Oct. 3), Villanova (Oct. 9), Rider (Oct. 12) and Seton Hall (Oct. 15). Rutgers is on the road again for four consecutive BIG EAST matches to close out the month of October. RU travels to St. John’s (Oct. 22), Connecticut (Oct. 24), Georgetown (Oct. 29) and USF (Oct. 31) to close out BIG EAST regular-season action away from the Garden State.

RICHARD L. MCCORMICK PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY Richard L. McCormick is the 19th president of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. A scholar of American political history who began his academic career on the Rutgers faculty, he returned as president in 2002 after serving as provost of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and president of the University of Washington. Dr. McCormick’s goal is to advance Rutgers within the top tier of American public research universities. His ambitions for the university include an enriched learning experience for every student; teaching and research focused on global human problems; diversity of students, faculty, staff, and programs; and deeper connections with the people of New Jersey. President McCormick led a major restructuring and reinvigoration of undergraduate education at Rutgers-New Brunswick, the university’s largest campus. The plan, approved in 2006, merged four undergraduate colleges into a School of Arts and Sciences, expanded access to academic programs and learning communities, and established a popular First-Year Seminar program that offers more than 100 courses – each with no more than 20 students – on a wide range of topics taught by top faculty. Other initiatives undertaken during Dr. McCormick’s tenure include: • Establishment of the first-ever universitywide alumni body, the Rutgers University Alumni Association. • The Rutgers Faculty Traveling Seminar, an annual week-long tour of New Jersey for new faculty. • The Rutgers Future Scholars Program, a pilot project to encourage minority and low-income teenagers from the university’s host cities to pursue higher education by offering mentorship and college preparation support, and the promise of free tuition to those admitted to Rutgers. • Rutgers-Camden’s first-ever doctoral-level academic program, a Ph.D. in childhood studies – the first in the nation in this emerging discipline. • Establishment of the School of Public Affairs and Administration, Rutgers-Newark’s first new school in more than three decades. Born in 1947, President McCormick earned a B.A. in American studies from Amherst College in 1969 and a Ph.D. in history from Yale University in 1976. He is married to Joan Barry McCormick, RU ’88. She is a Vice President at the Saint Peter’s Healthcare System in New Brunswick. Dr. McCormick has two children, Betsy and Michael.

TIM PERNETTI DIRECTOR OF INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS A lifetime New Jersey native with a strong passion for his alma mater, Tim Pernetti has come full-circle in becoming one of the nation’s youngest leaders in college athletics. A former student-athlete “On the Banks”, Pernetti was named Rutgers’ sixth Director of Intercollegiate of Athletics on February 26, 2009. He will oversee 24 men’s and women’s intercollegiate teams in New Brunswick, a larger number than fielded at most of the university’s peer institutions. The Division of Intercollegiate Athletics has 212 employees and an annual budget of approximately $56 million, roughly 3 percent of the university’s total $1.8 billion budget. Pernetti has been influential in the world of college athletics since he received a bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass media from Rutgers in 1993, and a master’s degree in communication in 1995. Prior to returning to Rutgers, Pernetti was the Executive Vice President, Content, for CBS College Sports Network. In that role, he oversaw the rights and relationship business, on-air talent, and all network programming and content on air, online and across all screens for the nation’s first company dedicated to college sports. Pernetti helped to build the CBS College Sports Network, previously CSTV, prior to its launch in 2003, and has played a critical role in establishing it as the multimedia leader in college sports programming, content, news and information. He was a recipient of the prestigious Sports Business Journal Forty under Forty Award, and the Multichannel News 40 under 40 Award both in 2008. Charged with developing relationships, acquiring rights and creating multiplatform original programming for the first ever 24-hour sports college sports network, Pernetti successfully navigated through a complicated web of media rights deals to come up with new ways to serve college sports fans. Pernetti worked closely with the NCAA and hundreds of schools in every major conference, securing over 2,500 hours of event programming each year and multiple NCAA Championships across 35 men’s and women’s sports. Pernetti was in charge of the CBS College Sports Network exclusive long-term agreements with the US Naval Academy, Mountain West Conference, Conference USA, and the Atlantic 10. Further he managed company relationships with more than 30 conferences and thousands of institutions. Pernetti remains most proud of establishing a strong relationship in women’s collegiate sports including the establishment of a women’s basketball game of the week package in 2004 with the Big East Conference.

50

In 2006, Pernetti spearheaded a landmark multi-media partnership with the NCAA to make CBS College Sports Network the home of Division II Sports. The innovative deal effectively increased the scope and reach of NCAA Division II sports with hundreds of games now available nationally via the broadcast network and online. Pernetti’s commitment to providing greater exposure to women’s and under-served sports is evidenced by the network’s unprecedented coverage of lacrosse and volleyball, among others. He has also

been at the forefront of the development and creation of the Collegiate Nationals, which crowns champions in dozens of high endurance sports, and innovative original production including CBS College Sports Network’s groundbreaking NCAA March Madness Central, NCAA March Madness Highlights on CBS College Sports, and the WIRED franchise which gives viewers an inside look at games and events through wireless microphones on coaches during game action. Prior to joining CBS College Sports Network, Pernetti served eight years at ABCTV and ABC Sports most recently as Director of Programming, where he was integral in acquiring, managing and developing several ABC Sports properties including college football, the Bowl Championship Series, and college basketball. For five years, Pernetti handled relationships and negotiated television rights with all of the major collegiate conferences. As a student at Rutgers, Pernetti was a four-year letterwinner at tight end on the Rutgers football squad. He was also the color commentator for Rutgers Football on the Rutgers Football Radio Network and announced weekly NFL games nationally on Sports USA Radio. A resident of Oakland, N.J., Pernetti is married to the former Danielle Bahto. His wife also graduated from Rutgers and was a letterwinner on the women’s lacrosse team. Danielle and Tim are the proud parents of their three children – Max, Conor and Natalie.

Why Scarlet? The color scarlet was first proposed in the campus newspaper, The Targum, in May 1869. It was adopted shortly thereafter. The color was chosen because it is striking and because good scarlet ribbon could be easily obtained. The trustees adopted scarlet as the school color in 1900, making Rutgers University one of the first colleges in the U.S. to have an official school color. Through the years, Scarlet has become embodied in the literature and songs of the college. It is identified with its sons and daughters, and is highly emblematic of the college itself.

Why Knights? Since its days when Rutgers was officially known as Queen’s College, the athletic teams were referred to as the Queensmen. Officially serving as the mascot figure for several football seasons beginning in 1925 was a giant, colorful felt-covered costumed representation of an earlier campus symbol, the “Chanticleer.” It remained the nickname for some 30 years. In the early 1950’s, in the hope of spurring both the all-around good athletic promise and RU fighting spirit, a campus wide-selection process changed the mascot to that of a Knight. By 1955, the Scarlet Knight had become the new Rutgers mascot.

Rutgers Stadium – the home of Scarlet Knights football – is the centerpiece of RU’s facilities. A 102-million dollar expansion completed in 2009 increased the capacity of the stadium to 52,454. A 7,656-square-foot football recruiting lounge and welcome center was built on the mezzanine level in the new south end zone of the expanded Rutgers Stadium. In addition, the project welcomed nearly 1,000 premium club level mezzanine seats in a suite setting. Connected and adjacent to Rutgers Stadium is the Hale Center. It is the home of the Scarlet Knights’ football team and houses training, administrative and academic resource personnel. A 14,262 foot weight room is equipped with over 100 machines and free-weight stations, as well as a 60-yard FieldTurf track. Interactive digital classrooms, computer lab, video room and a 150-seat theater for use with game preparation and academics highlight the amenities. The building also houses a state-of-the-art training with the latest medical equipment and a wet room with hot and cold tubs and a Hydroworks treadmill. In addition to football, the facility houses the offices of the field hockey, men’s soccer, women’s lacrosse and men’s lacrosse teams. The Louis Brown Athletic Center, or The RAC as it is often called, is home to the Rutgers men’s and women’s basketball programs. Opened in 1977, the Louis Brown Athletic Center is one of the great arenas in the nation to watch exciting college basketball. This 8,000 seat arena has been dubbed, “louder than a 757 from nearby Newark. Most fans and students still refer to this truncated pyramid, which lies on the northern end of the Livingston campus, as “The RAC,” which is short for Rutgers Athletic Center, the original name of the facility. The RAC was named the second-loudest arena in the nation by cbsportsbeat.com. Several renovations are currently undergoing at the RAC. The Bauer Track and Field Complex – home to the Rutgers track and field program and the field hockey team - is one of the finest outdoor facilities in the nation. Located directly behind the Louis Brown Athletic Center and dedicated in April 1996, the facility boasts eight track lanes, two shot put circles, four long/triple jump runways, two discus/hammer cages, two pole vault runways, two javelin runways and sprinting and hurdling areas on either side of the track.

Located next door the Bainton is the Softball complex, home the squad since 1984. Yurcak Field is home to the Rutgers soccer and lacrosse programs. Dedicated on April 16, 1994, the stadium is officially named “The Soccer/Lacrosse Stadium at Yurcak Field” in honor of Ronald N. Yurcak, a 1965 All-American Rutgers Lacrosse player who made a generous donation to the university. Featuring a 120’ x 75’ grass playing surface, the stadium is complete with state of the art irrigation and drainage systems. The fully lit stadium houses 5,000 fans in its spacious grandstand is capable of holding several thousand more across the field in the stadium’s picnic area. Once the home of the Rutgers basketball team, the College Avenue Gym has matured into a quality facility for several indoor sports. Known as “The Barn” because of its distinctive look, the College Avenue Gymnasium is the home site for all Scarlet Knights wrestling and volleyball matches. A capacity crowd of 1,200 fans, who are right on top of the action, serve a dual purpose - to inspire the Scarlet Knight team and to create an intimidating atmosphere for RU opponents. The Rutgers wrestling team’s practice facility - a 3,200 square foot room – is also housed in the College Avenue Gymnasium. The Rutgers Swimming and Diving program has found a home at the Rutgers Aquatic Center, located in the Sonny Werblin Recreation Center on the Busch Campus. The building houses a competitive-size pool, which measures 50 meters by 25 meters in width. It also has one movable bulkhead, separating the swimming and diving areas. The pool has eight Olympic standard lanes. For collegiate and NCAA meets, the pool area can be converted to eight NCAA standard lanes with 10 warmup lanes. The diving area consists of two one-meter springboards, two three-meter springboards, and a 10-meter diving tower. There are three takeoff platforms which are five, seven and a half, and 10 meters in height. The depth of the diving area is 17 feet at its deepest and six feet at its shallowest. The tennis facilities feature 12 all-weather varsity courts, six of which were completely renovated and resurfaced in 1997. A tennis house is adjacent to the courts, complete with a space for game-film viewing, team meetings, and classroom instruction. Access to indoor courts at the Busch Tennis Bubble, located on campus, and local racquet clubs round out the team’s indoor practice and competitive needs. The complex is located adjacent to Rutgers Stadium, next to the Hale Center. Additionally, an indoor tennis bubble is located on Busch Campus for year-round play.

Tutoring services are offered as an additional resource to help student-athletes strive for their maximum potential. Tutoring is particularly helpful during teams of team travel. Four Rutgers teams received public recognition from the NCAA for top academic performance for their multi-year Academic Progress Rate scores in May 2010. It marked the third-consecutive year that the Scarlet Knights’ football, women’s tennis and men’s cross country programs were cited by the NCAA, while women’s gymnastics was honored for the first year. The Rutgers football program was the lone state university on the list to be ranked in the top 10 percent nationally in APR for the third straight year. The Scarlet Knights were one of only four institutions that played in a bowl game and ranked in the top 10 percent of the APR in 2009-10.

The Rutgers strength and conditioning program is designed to enhance and improve athletic performance, and in turn lead to team success. Far beyond lifting weights and running intervals, the strength and conditioning program at Rutgers gives student-athletes a competitive edge. The goals of the program are simple; to build strong, well-conditioned athletes who can perform to the best of their ability and to the expectations of the coach. Endurance and strength are program goals, as are an increase in speed, power and agility. However, nothing could be more critical than staying healthy, one of the main goals of the strength and conditioning program. Lean muscle mass helps athletes avoid injury and heal more quickly if an injury does occur. When muscles are strong, they are prepared to support the whole body through rigorous and intense competition. That is why the training occurs long before the season begins and continues year-round. Training in fully equipped and spacious weight rooms at both the Louis Brown Athletic Center and the Hale Center, the strength and conditioning staff develops and implements a comprehensive step-by-step program for each individual studentathlete based on their particular needs. A year-around proposition, the Scarlet Knights train to increase their strength, foot speed, hand/eye coordination, agility and flexibility during the summer and preseason. Many athletes train on campus during the summer, and those who train at home have a detailed workout plan to follow, because it is during the offseason that most of the gains are made. During the season, the program is designed to maintain the gains made in the summer and preseason. Interval training is a large part of the in-season regimen that maintains strength and conditioning while preserving the players’ energy for competition. A team of athletic trainers and doctors work daily with Scarlet Knight student-athletes, committed to offering the best in sports medicine and comprehensive health care. Injury prevention, treatment and rehabilitation are some of the primary focuses of the Rutgers sports medicine staff. Each team is assigned an athletic trainer who provides on-site evaluation and treatment if an athlete should become injured, immediate first aid care, follow-up rehabilitation care, and specific conditioning programs for injury prevention. Student-athletes can receive treatment at three sites on the Rutgers campus. The Hale Center is the main athletic training room, conveniently located near the Team Physician’s Office in case further follow-up is needed. The other athletic training rooms are located in the lower levels of the College Ave Gym and the Louis Brown Athletic Center.
