Our Impact

PlaySafe provides certified athletic trainers to schools that do not otherwise have the resources to provide these essential services.

“We evaluate the injured athlete, rehab them back into action, and deal with everything from sniffles to an injured shoulder or knee. I am the medical person for the injured athlete and the middleman for getting them to the doctor or working on them for several days.”

Sean Landes, PlaySafe ATC

To provide the best possible care for student athletes, athletic training services are needed consistently throughout the afternoons and evenings during practices and sporting events. While public schools have a duty to provide proper supervision during athletic activities, few have the resources to do so. PlaySafe is the answer in helping schools fulfill this duty by placing a full-time, salaried athletic trainer on campus.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends an athletic trainer be present at all football games and practices.
