Robert E. Lee High School receives National Athletic Trainers’ Association Safe Sports School Award

August 29, 2017

 

Robert E. Lee High School is the recipient of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) Safe Sports School 1st Team award for its Red Raider athletic training program. The award recognizes secondary schools that provide safe environments for student athletes and reinforces the importance of providing the best level of care, injury prevention and treatment. Awarded every three years, this is the second time Lee has received the 1st Team award.

 

“Lee is honored to receive this recognition from NATA, and we remain committed to keeping our student athletes safe during physical education classes, team practices and games so they can accomplish their own goals of great competition, winning records, fair sportsmanship and good health,” Amy Langley, head athletic trainer at Lee, said. “Our goal is to lead our athletics program to the highest safety standards for our players.”

 

“We remain committed to the health and welfare of young athletes in competitive sports,” says NATA President Scott Sailor, EdD, ATC. “This award recognizes the contributions and commitment of schools across the country that are implementing safe sports policies and best practices to ensure athletes can do what they love best and have the appropriate care in place to prevent, manage and treat injuries should they occur.”

 

In order to achieve Safe Sport School status, athletic programs must do the following:

  • Create a positive athletic health care administrative system

  • Provide or coordinate pre-participation physical examinations

  • Promote safe and appropriate practice and competition facilities

  • Plan for selection, fit function and proper maintenance of athletic equipment

  • Provide a permanent, appropriately equipped area to evaluate and treat injured athletes

  • Develop injury and illness prevention strategies, including protocols for environmental conditions

  • Provide or facilitate injury intervention

  • Create and rehearse a venue-specific Emergency Action Plan

  • Provide or facilitate psychosocial consultation and nutritional counseling/education

  • Be sure athletes and parents are educated of the potential benefits and risks in sports as well as their responsibilities
