Tyler White, ATC, iSPORT Training Coordinator
Tyler has been working at iSPORT since 2008 and has been integral in designing and implementing rehabilitation programs for high school, collegiate and professional athletes that reduce injury rates and improve performance.

Tyler graduated from Castleton State College in Vermont as a Certified Athletic Trainer. He spent four years on the men’s Ice Hockey Team as an undergrad. This necessitated many hours in the weight room and gym developing the strength and stamina necessary to compete at the collegiate level. This experience helped him to understand the needs of injured athletes and what is ultimately required to get an athlete back to competition at their highest level. He continues to be active in post-collegiate hockey leagues as a player.

The number of world-class and professional athletes that have come to iSPORT have provided Tyler an opportunity that few professional ATCs ever receive. This experience has provided valuable insight as to what is required in the design and implementation of world-class programs for athletes of all ages and abilities.
