Sportsmetrics Course at LSU- Lafayette

On May 9th and 10th, we traveled to Louisiana State University- Lafayette, LA.  The course was hosted by Tiina Garrison, PhD, MS, CSCS, who has been certified with the Sportsmetrics program since March of 2008.  Tiina was kind enough to get me acquainted with local tradition on arrival including a swamp tour and introduction to the region’s friendliest gator, Sheree.  The Ragin’ Cajuns know how to welcome their visitors!  The course roster included PT’s, ATCs and coaches from the region as well as Kala Kuhlmann from the University of Nebraska Medical Center and Shelby Cedotal from Mid-Tennessee Bone and Joint PT.  We are happy to welcome our 13 new certified instructors to the Sportsmetrics family!
