NXTsports is re-upping with Go4Ellis as its athletic trainer staffing solution. Over the next 12 months, NXTsports, one of the nation’s largest youth sports event management and education companies, will staff all of its athletic training needs through Go4Ellis now at an upgraded pay rate of $35/hour. NXTsports has committed to staff approximately 2500 hours of athletic training services annually through Go4Ellis.
“The value of athletic trainers from a safety and liability perspective is clear,” said Melissa Gingrich, CFO of NXTsports, “we don’t run any events or programming without an appropriate ratio of athletic trainers present to the number of participating athletes. We have also worked an upgraded amount of $35 an hour for AT services into our budget, out of reflection that $35 is the appropriate rate in Greater Philadelphia.”
The Go4Ellis platform efficiently links athletic trainers with sports event operators looking to hire athletic trainers. Athletic trainers register for free accounts and set up a professional profile, including proof of licensure, liability insurance, and other legal requirements. Similarly, event operators can register for accounts and post upcoming work opportunities and pay rates. Payment is automated through the platform, Go4Ellis also handles all year-end tax documentation for both athletic trainers and event operators, and auto-generates an emergency action plan for every venue athletic trainers are at.
Go4Ellis is currently open in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Florida with plans to expand nationwide. The company is recruiting athletic trainers nationally and currently 1 out of every 15 Athletic Trainers in the United States has a Go4Ellis account. Go4Ellis quickly earned the approval of the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA), and is NATA’s official per diem app.
