Elkhart, IN – Elkhart High School was awarded the “Safe Sports School Award” by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association.
The award champions safety and recognizes secondary schools that have met or exceeded the recommendations to ensure safety in sports.
Elkhart High School is one of 50 from across the country to receive the award.
“The health and safety of student-athletes is critical as it has both immediate and long-term effects,” said NATA President Tory Lindley, MA, ATC.
“NATA created the ‘Safe Sports School Award’ to recognize and champion schools nationwide that are committed to enhancing safety in sports.”
“Elkhart High School is proud and honored to receive this recognition from NATA,” said Jacquie Rost, athletic director for EHS.
