Liberty High School’s athletic program has received the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Safe Sports School award.

The Eagles’ training staff, led by head trainer Mandy Carter, earned “1st team” status for 2016-19.

The award recognizes schools that provide safe environments for student athletes.

“We remain committed to keeping our student athletes safe during physical education classes, team practices and games so they can accomplish their own goals of great competition, winning records, fair sportsmanship and good health,” Ms. Carter said. “Our goal is to lead our athletics program to the highest safety standards for our players.”

“This award recognizes the contributions and commitment of schools across the country that are implementing safe sports policies and best practices to ensure athletes can do what they love best and have the appropriate care in place to prevent, manage and treat injuries should they occur,” said NATA President Scott Sailor.

Liberty received the same award during 2013-16.

To achieve the Safe Sports School status, Liberty’s program satisfied these requirements:

• Create a positive athletic health care administrative system.

• Provide or coordinate pre-participation physical examinations.

• Promote safe and appropriate practice and competition facilities.

• Plan for selection, fit function and proper maintenance of athletic equipment.

• Provide a permanent, appropriately equipped area to evaluate and treat injured athletes.

• Develop injury and illness prevention strategies, including protocols for environmental conditions.

• Provide or facilitate injury intervention.

• Create and rehearse a venue-specific Emergency Action Plan.

• Provide or facilitate psychosocial consultation and nutritional counseling/education.

• Ensure athletes and parents are educated of the potential benefits and risks in sports as well as their responsibilities.
