Safe Sports School Award

Program recognizes high schools that help to keep young athletes safe

 

WHS is the recipient of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) Safe Sports School award. The award champions safety and recognizes secondary schools that provide safe environments for student athletes. The award reinforces the importance of providing the best level of care, injury prevention and treatment.

“Weston High School is honored to receive this 1st Team recognition from NATA, and 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. Our goal is to lead our athletics program to the highest safety standards for our players,” said Andrew Rizza MS, ATC, LAT Head Athletic Trainer, Weston Public Schools.

“We remain committed to the health and welfare of young athletes in competitive sports,” says NATA President Scott Sailor, EdD, ATC. “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.”

In order to achieve Safe Sport School status, as WHS did, athletic programs must do the following:

 

•             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

Hello Weston Families,

 

I hope the start of the school year has been a success for your family.  The reason for my email is to inform you of the Weston Boosters fundraising efforts that are beginning for the 2016/17 school year.  As you may or may not know no school sponsored athletic programs fundraise individually and rely on the Weston Boosters to fulfill their fundraising needs unlike many of our neighboring communities. Additionally, most of these same communities require families to pay an athletic user fee, upwards of $300 per sport in many cases, something Weston does not require. The Weston Boosters through their fundraising efforts contribute to the needs of every Weston High School and Weston Middle School athletic team as well as provide assistance to Weston elementary physical education teachers by assisting with additional athletic equipment.

 

With 56% of the Weston High School student body and over 53% of the Weston Middle School student body participating in athletics this fall your generous financial support will help provide our student-athletes with a wide range of assistance including essential financial scholarships, sports equipment, team uniforms, coaching assistance tools, and playing field equipment. The need for this support continues to grow, and the benefit of this support is seen and experienced by most every student at WHS, WMS and the Weston Elementary Schools.

 

The Weston Boosters are an integral part of Weston Athletics. We hope that every Weston family can contribute to this year's fundraising efforts and help us continue to provide for our athletic programs. Please feel free to make a tax-deductible donation online today by clicking on the link below.

Thank you for your time and continued support of Weston Boosters.

 

Sincerely, 

Mike
