Welcome back to PlaySafe Recap! We have had quite a busy couple of weeks here at PlaySafe and we want to make sure you're all caught up on the latest happenings. We've been busy gearing up for Fall sports, educating coaches on sports safety practices, honoring Certified Athletic Trainers of The Quarter, and oh did we mention hosting one of our biggest annual events of the year?! It's been pretty crazy to say the least, but it's also been tons of fun. There's no better time spent than that in service of others, and at PlaySafe, serving the community is our number one job! So check out what we've been up to and as always, thanks for taking the time to learn more about PlaySafe.
Let's start with the people who make what we do at PlaySafe possible. School hasn't even started yet, but our amazing Athletic Trainers are already hard at work at Clay-Chalkville High School in Alabama. Injuries don't just happen under the Friday Night Lights. In fact, nearly half of sport-related injuries happen during practice and scrimmages. Having ATC's present can literally save a life!
Congratulations are in order! Meet Wade Ollis and Tayler McPherson, Alabama's very own Athletic Trainers of the Quarter. This honor is awarded to the Athletic Trainer(s) that go above and beyond their daily duties. Thank you Wade and Tayler for the example you set and all that you do at Hewitt-Trussville High School!
