Helmets Lined Up on Football Field

According to Centers for Disease Control, the number of high school students playing sports has increased to 7 million, and many more children play in middle school and summer sports leagues. The increased sports participation has brought a sharp rise in the chance of injury, as today’s student athletes are encouraged to become bigger, faster and stronger. Now more than ever, schools and athletic leagues turn to certified athletic trainers for help in injury recovery and  - more importantly - injury prevention.
