White Paper: Reducing Sports-Related Risk in Your School District
from National School Boards Association
The quest to improve student athlete safety at the secondary school level in Arkansas began at state universities in the late 1980s. Collegiate athletic trainers noticed incoming freshman athletes were coming in with injuries that hadn't been properly handled at their high school, and their athletic careers were suffering because of it. Noticing a need for better athlete health care in Arkansas high schools, the collegiate athletic trainers joined forces with physicians to start outreach programs to the local schools.
