OUR MISSION

OUR MISSION

The mission of the CoachSafely Foundation is to limit youth sports-related injuries through research, advocacy and education of coaches, parents, physical educators and other influential figures in young athletes’ lives.

OUR VISION

OUR VISION

The CoachSafely Foundation’s vision is to set a new standard for youth sports safety through the influence of laws, policies and best practices through data-driven research in order to limit youth sports-related injuries.

WHY TRAIN COACHES?

“Every coach of every sport at every level is practicing sports medicine in three ways: injury prevention, injury recognition and injury response. Knowledge is basic to these three criteria for keeping kids safe. With children, the knowledge is different than with adults. No adult coach is prepared to coach a child without training”

- Coach Jack Crowe, Founder and Chairman, CoachSafely Foundation
THE LAW

Every youth injured playing sports is a loss.
