PlaySafe USA consists of 30+ ATCs who practice in collaboration with physicians and health team members from various hospitals in our service area. The welfare of young athletes is their top priority. Athletic trainers provide primary care, injury and illness prevention, wellness promotion and education, emergency care, examination and clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. Not only are the responsibilities encompassing and diverse, but PlaySafe’s team travels the region caring for athletes with High Schools, Middle Schools, Higher Education Schools as well as state tournaments and outside sports organizations in the summer months.

“There used to be off seasons between sports, but there’s no such thing anymore,” said Jason Powell, Athletic Trainer Administrator for PlaySafe USA. “Our trainers work long hours and really hard to keep kids of South Carolina and Georgia safe.”

ATCs cover practices, training room hours, and conduct follow-up visits to injured athletes. They travel with teams at the high school and college level and attend home games of sporting events in their district. Ask Jason Powell who’s working a game, and he reaches for his athletic trainer schedule, which is a multicolored calendar where each color represents someone assigned to a specific event. It resembles a vibrant rainbow after a very long rain.
