Providing a safe sports experience for young athletes is a collective effort, and the National Conference on Youth Sports Safety earlier this month spotlighted that theme. The 2013 edition of this meeting celebrated the launch of the Protecting Athletes and Sports Safety (PASS) initiative, created to establish national safety guidelines intended to educate parents and provide information that helps reduce youth sports injuries.
The November meeting in Washington, DC, featured a wide range of participants, including the players and coaches so engrained in this conversation, to the health care providers crucial to ensuring these players remain safe. The PASS initiative hopes to bring these groups together with policy leaders, governing bodies and the media to explore the research that is needed to study sports injuries – in particular concussions – as well as understand the role individuals play in building awareness (and ultimately preventing the injuries when possible).
Dr. Jo Hannafin, President of the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) – our parent organization – attended the meeting to offer her perspective as a healthcare provider connected directly to athletes through the sports medicine specialty. We are grateful to be a part of the PASS initiative, and look forward to sharing more in the future!
