Pennsylvania More Than Doubles the National Average of High School Sports Teams Which Have Access to an Athletic Trainer
Date:9/23/2013

Harrisburgh, PA (PRWEB) September 24, 2013

As the fall high school sports season gets underway, the Pennsylvania Athletic Trainers’ Society (PATS) is proud to announce the results of a recently completed state wide effort to identify schools that provide athletic training services to their athletes. This effort is part of an ongoing study being completed in conjunction with Korey Stringer Institute (KSI) and the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA). Officials from school districts in Pennsylvania were asked various questions to assess the extent of the health care provided to their student athletes via athletic training coverage. The survey was designed to evaluate the extent of the coverage, whether there is full time or part time access to athletic trainers, by whom is the athletic trainer employed, and which sports are provided health care coverage.

Athletic Trainers (ATs) have worked in high schools for decades providing health care to scholastic athletes nationwide. The reported national average of 42% of high schools nationwide providing athletic training services to their athletes has been used for years. This is why PATS is so proud of their 90% high school saturation rate. “Any time you can more than double the national average it is a good thing. However, the current Executive Board believes we need to continue to improve these numbers by identifying those schools not providing Athletic Training services and educating them about the benefits of employing an athletic trainer. All scholastic athletes in Pennsylvania deserve to have access to Athletic Training services and licensed health care professionals.” Yvette Ingram, President of PATS.

The researchers at the KSI are reporting preliminary findings from their nearly yearlong study. In PA, 43% of the schools that responded to the study employed a full time athletic trainer, and an additional 40% were full time athletic trainers in
