Athletics Training Services and Facilities

The Northwestern Oklahoma State athletic training staff will be available to assist your visiting team athletic trainer and your athletic team during your visit to Alva, Okla.  

Currently, the facility for football has been demolished and the new field house and locker room will be built within the next year. Location for the locker rooms and tapings will be at Alva High School (800 Flynn Ave.). We will not be able to provide any water due to the limited amount of water coolers that we have in stock and in use for football and/soccer games. There will be two, seven gallon coolers of water available during halftime. You may use the maintenance building during halftime, but some visiting schools have opted to use the baseball field instead. These water coolers will be placed in the back of the golf cart so you can move to either of those locations.

On the sidelines, four ten-gallon coolers of water, cups, ice, bags, a scoop and flexi-wrap will be available. You may can take the ice chest back to the high school for icing treatments after the game, please let us know so we can pick up the ice chest and supplies later.

Modalities will not be available at this time for football games. There may be a team physician available.  I will notify before Thursday if one will not be available. An ambulance service is available and present just before game time. If there is anything we can do to help, please give me an advance call at (580) 327-8627 or you can email me at rdhibberts@nwosu.edu.
