Youth Organization: Students Need Athletic Trainers or Doctors at Every School
from The Oakland Tribune
Student athletes need access to health care professionals, better-trained coaches and up-to-date equipment, a coalition of groups recommended in a call to action aimed at protecting the nearly 8 million students participating in high school sports. The Youth Sports Safety Alliance released the proposed rules, which call for health providers such as athletic trainers or doctors available for every school, warnings about performance-enhancing substances for athletes and the creation of a national registry to track student athlete deaths.
