Keeping young athletes safe


PlaySafe works to educate, promote, support and foster healthy lifestyles, wellness and safe athletic participation in active youth, young adults and the community at large.


Only 42% of high schools have access to athletic training services. We're on a mission to change that. 


we do


The Sports Medicine Services in our community are unfunded by the state. PlaySafe, a 501c(3) non-profit organization, strives to support essential sports medicine services to our athletic youth and community by providing and funding certified athletic trainers to secondary schools in our community.  We believe that professional, competent sports medicine services, begin with a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC), and are critical to safe and healthy athletic participation. Certified athletic trainers are experts in sports related injury prevention, assessment and care. The presence of a full time ATC can simply put, save a life!



Sports medicine care for all


All secondary schools in our service area will have at least one full-time, certified or licensed health care professional on staff, dedicated to the provision of comprehensive sports medicine/health services for all student athletes and the student population at large. These services will encourage and promote the healthy, safe, athletic participation and return to sports activity for all student athletes, as well as providing healthy lifestyle educational programming for both student athletes and non-athletes. The secondary school program support will serve as a community-based, healthy lifestyle program from which additional community specific programming can be developed and served.


What you can do

PlaySafe exists to support our schools, parents, businesses and community at large. PlaySafe needs support from corporations, foundations, businesses and individuals in order to sustain and grow to meet the high demands of our schools and parents!
