from Athletic Business
As youth and high school sports injuries continue to make headlines, a new study published in the
Journal of Athletic Training
revealed that high school athletic directors face challenges when it comes to staffing qualified athletic trainers. Despite a best-practices recommendation from the Inter-Association Task Force for Preventing Sudden Death in Secondary School Athletics Programs that all high schools have an athletic trainer on staff, nearly two-thirds of high schools don't have a full-time athletic trainer, and almost 30 percent have no athletic training services at all.
