Jaclyn Johnston's comment, March 12, 2013 8:17 AM
In May of 2010 the average wage made by athletic trainers was $41,600. Half of the ATs in that year made more than that amount and the other half made less than that. The lowest amount made was $25,750 and the highest amount made was $64,390. Plus, most work with sports teams so therefore they need to also work evenings, weekends, and travel often with their teams.
