Athletic trainers lead Back to Sports meetings as facilitators. It’s a natural fit. Back to Sports supports the fundamental goal of every athletic trainer promoting sports safety for their athletes.
Athletic trainers are involved in the full spectrum of sports safety and response management — from prevention to emergency care to rehabilitation — and they must be knowledgeable on many sports-related safety topics. This makes athletic trainers ideal for delivering sports safety information.
By facilitating a meeting, athletic trainers help educate adults about important habits and skills that can help keep youth athletes safe. The facilitator delivers the youth wellness and sports safety information and creates a positive learning experience. The information covered in Back to Sports meetings are a great fit for parent meetings or events that may already be planned.
