15 high schools get $50K each for ATs

The NFL Foundation, the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA), Gatorade, and the Professional Football Athletic Trainers Society (PFATS) announced on March 14 the winners of the Athletic Trainer Initiative at the seventh-annual Youth Sports Safety Summit, held in Alexandria, VA, and hosted by NATA and the Youth Sports Safety Alliance.

The national grant contest expands access to athletic trainers in underserved high schools to improve youth athlete safety.

The 15 winning schools received $50,000 each to develop athletic training programs that will provide nearly 5000 student athletes with consistent access.

The grant contest, which launched in October 2015, is an extension of the partners’ athletic training outreach program, which has provided more than $3 million to help fund athletic trainers in communities nationwide.
