How much does an athletic trainer make at CFCC and UNCW?

Dan Spears

According to the most recent figures in the StarNews public officials salary database, four athletic trainers currently at the University of North Carolina Wilmington make from $31,493 to $34,278. (The fifth trainer is new to the department and her salary was not in the latest set of salaries requested.) Director of Sports Medicine Scott Hill is paid $51,500. Cape Fear Community College has no on-campus athletic trainers for its sports programs, instead contracting out that work to two local trainers.

Comparing those numbers to a 2008 salary survey by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, finds that UNCW’s numbers are below average on a national and regional level.

Nationally, trainers in their first year of service averaged $29,749 in salary. That number jumps to $34,436 for one to five years of experience, and to $41,667 for five to 10 years. UNCW’s trainers average nearly six years of service with the school.

In NATA’s District 3, which includes the Carolinas, Virginias, Maryland and the District of Columbia, the annual average salary is $43,246. The NATA salaries include trainers from state institutions, as well as private schools.
