As part of the NCAA Big Ten Conference, the University of Wisconsin fields competitive teams in more than 20 Division I sports. Badger football, basketball, ice hockey, wrestling, volleyball, and track and field are all highly successful, nationally recognized programs. The UW Athletic Department provides a team of 20 certified athletic trainers, a physical therapist, a dietitian, chiropractic and acupuncture services, psychiatric and counseling services, and state-of-the-art athletic training facilities for its athletes and medical staff.
The Dave McClain Athletic Facility adjacent to the football stadium was extensively renovated in 2013 to create a modern state-of-the-art facility. The 76,000-square-foot main floor includes a 90-yard turf field for practice during inclement weather. On the lower floor, the expansive, modern Mueller Sports Medicine Center serves as the primary athletic training facility for all athletes. The center features a private clinical area for physicians and one of the nation’s most extensive athletic performance laboratories. A battery of tests, performed multiple times each year for most teams, provides information on body composition, agility, strength, and coordination. This data assists coaches with training, physicians with return to sport decisions, and our Badger Athletic Performance research group with a plethora of data to evaluate athletic injury and performance.
Satellite state-of-the-art athletic training facilities, remodeled or built in 2013, are located at each venue, including Camp Randall, the Kohl Center, the LaBahn Arena, and the Goodman Softball Complex.
