Nebraska Athletic Trainers’ Association: Safety in Sport Campaign

All across the state of Nebraska, athletic trainers are providing their clinical skill and expertise each and every day to improve the overall health and safety of their athletes. According to a study conducted by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the presence of athletic trainers in the secondary schools lowers overall injury rates, improves diagnosis and return-to-play decisions, and reduces the risk for recurrent injuries. In other words, Safety in Athletics begins with having an Athletic Trainer.

In this document you will find ideas for how to build your campaign, mock talking points for athletic trainers, coaches, and administrators, sample radio/television commercial scripts, sample press releases, and NSATA Logos to use along with your campaign.
