This eight-hour workshop covers many of the taping techniques used in a sport setting through a combination of lecture and practical sessions. The theory behind athletic taping as well as safety considerations relating to taping will be introduced.
The course begins by introducing some basic athletic injuries and scenarios where taping and wrapping can be beneficial. Course participants will be taught when taping and wrapping can be beneficial to athletes and when it can be a hindrance. Furthermore, alternative injury management solutions will be discussed. Discussion will be held about the correct course of action in managing an athlete with an injury, and where taping and wrapping fit into that management plan.
Taping is a skill that takes practice and experience. Therefore, following the introduction module, the course participants will learn various taping techniques commonly used in sports and have the chance to practice each one. Instruction and guidance through the practical taping and wrapping sessions will be from an experienced practitioner.
