Who we are
and what we do

We’re Atlantis Athletics. Our plan within the next 3 years is to become a full-blown collegiate athletics department with a total of 20 sports with affiliation to the USCAA or NCCAA.

While our plan might sound a bit ambitious, our mission is simple and humble: we want to inspire you. We want you to create a personal connection with our core values of sportsmanship, leadership, integrity, and service to the community.

By giving you a quality athletic program, you’ll be able to engage with our communities and, above all, to enhance your personal experience with Atlantis University. That’s the score that should matter most.

Let the games begin.

Let’s set up
the “cheer-full”
atmosphere

Be safe: The Atlantis University Athletic Department requires all student-athletes to be covered by valid primary insurance, from an American based company.

Keep training hard: The training room will be open 2 hours prior to the event and 30 minutes after. Please give prior notice if your team will be training before an event, so that we can accommodate your needs accordingly.

Ready when you are: We’ll be glad to help your team get ready for their events. Please send the necessary supplies with your team, including: tape, ace bandages, insurance or emergency contact information, etc.

Get to know your certified trainers: If you’re planning on sending a certified athletic or student trainer with your teams, please forward their names to athletics@atlantisuniversity.edu If your team is traveling without a certified athletic trainer, please notify us in advance so we can make the necessary arrangements and provide coverage for your team.

Putting
student-athlete
safety first

No athlete or injury is too insignificant to receive our greatest attention.

Working with those in the medical community, our goal is to maximize our ability to prevent, evaluate, treat, and rehabilitate athletic injuries while doing so in a professional, efficient, and service-orientated manner.

Our athletic training staff will provide the best possible medical care to our student-athletes. All athletic injuries are to be reported immediately to a coach and athletic trainer for evaluation and care.

After an evaluation of the reported injury, the coach, athletic trainer, and student-athletes will work together in treating the injury through appropriate means.

It’s the student athlete’s responsibility to report back to the coach and athletic trainer if the injury becomes worse, persists, or if an outside physician is consulted.

Our trainers are: Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC), National Athletic Training Association, Licensed Athletic Trainer (LAT), State of Florida, Certified Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES), National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, (CSCS) National Strength and Conditioning Association.

Covid-19 protocols
In order to reduce the spreading of the Covid-19 virus, our university will continue to follow protocols already in place such as face masks, temperature checks, hand sanitizer and social distancing in our offices.

Some of the preliminary ideas being considered for the Atlantis University Athletic Department include and are not limited to:

  • Atlantis University will follow the NCCAA and NAIA Temperature Check-in and Contact Form.
  • Practices, before each practice, coaching staff will go through all Covid-19 protocols.
  • Temperatures will be taken before every training session and practice, and before games for each and all athletes present.
  • Each athlete present must use hand sanitizer before moving on to practice and or game.
  • All coaches and all staff must always wear masks during practices and games (inside and or outside at the fields).
  • If the practice is not at the field or court and it’s conducted inside (film session or meeting), all coaching staff and players must always wear a mask and practice social distancing 6 feet apart.
  • Athletes, coaches, and staff must all wear masks on buses and vans when traveling.
  • Athletes, coaches, and staff may be asked to sit in their “own” row or separate seats on buses, if possible.
  • Bus companies have been asked to “wipe down” or “spray” the bus interior after we exit, but our own staff may be asked to do this.
  • At every training session or practice, Athletes will have their own water bottle and that there’s no sharing of water bottles.
  • Uniform care for training will be the responsibility of each player, coaching staff will be asked to collect and launder all the game uniforms, but bleach may be added to white uniforms while special sanitizer may be added to colors. The idea of each athlete being responsible for their own uniform has also been considered but seems unlikely
  • Athletes may be asked to shower independently or away from each other depending on facilities.
  • Athletes (and coaches) may be asked to sit “away from each other” on the bench. Tape may be used to designate separate seating on a bench, or every other chair may be used if the fold out type is used.
  • Athletes will be asked to wear a mask while on the bench.
  • Athletes, coaches, and staff will be asked to continue wearing masks while visiting the opponent’s facilities
  • Team meals are still under consideration because social distancing needs to be observed at restaurants.
  • Sub sandwiches and pizza have been discussed as alternatives since teams can do that on their own.
  • A solution of alcohol and water in a 5-gallon pump bottle has been suggested to “spray” athletes, and athletic equipment before each practice or training session and after games.
  • All protocols must be followed at other institutions and should be adhered to by visiting teams and organizations.
  • When playing at home, Atlantis University will ask the opposing team to present themselves 2 hours prior to the contest in order for our Athletic Trainer to check their temperature. If the opposing team has more than 10% of their players with temperatures above 100.2°F, the contest will be canceled.
  • Fans and supporters may be asked to observe social distancing by sitting away from each other or designated areas in a gym, field, or other athletic facility.
  • If an athlete is showing Covid-19 symptoms and or temperature is above 100.2°F, that athlete will be immediately removed from practice and or game and will be asked to go get tested.
  • If an athlete has Covid-19 symptoms, that athlete will be asked to quarantine and not show up to any practice and or game until the athlete can produce a negative test result.
