Advocates For Injured Athletes
If you have been following OSI on Facebook, you may have seen us mention to “follow” Advocates for Injured Athletes. This is a non-profit organization which strives for helping keep athletes safe by providing support, education and resources to increase sports safety.
Above is a video about a boy named Tommy. His injury is how the Advocates for Injured Athletes organization got started. It is a true testament to the importance of having an Athletic Trainer on staff. Athletic Trainers are trained in trauma and emergency situations. Athletic Trainers are usually the first person at the scene of the injuries and can provide immediate care to athletes. These emergency/life altering situations do happen when people participate in sporting activities, it is just important to be prepared and have an Athletic Trainer on staff to manage these situations.
Do you need an Athletic Trainer at your school or event? Let us know, we would love to partner with you!
Happy National Athletic Training Month,
