Best Practice Recommendations for Youth Sports Leagues Released at Youth Sports Safety Summit

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--At the eighth Youth Sports Safety Summit this morning, leading health care experts released new recommendations, “The Inter-Association Task Force Document on Emergency Health and Safety: Best Practice Recommendations for Youth Sports Leagues,” published online first today in the Journal of Athletic Training, the scientific publication of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA). These groundbreaking health and safety guidelines provide a roadmap for national governing bodies (NGBs) to ensure the best policies and procedures are in place to protect young athletes.

The task force was originally convened in 2015, and has met annually since then through the leadership and collaboration of NATA and the Korey Stringer Institute. Today’s event was hosted by NATA and the Youth Sports Safety Alliance, comprising nearly 290 sport and health organizations committed to sports safety.
