Collinsville High School is the recipient of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Safe Sports School 1st Team 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. 1st Team awards are given to schools that have acted on all recommended and required elements of the Safe Sports School checklist. 2nd Team awards are for schools that have completed only required elements.
Collinsville High School is the only metro-east high school with a 1st Team designation. The award covers a three-year period from April 2017-April 2020.
“Ensuring the health and safety of the athletes is the top priority of those of us on the CHS Sports Medicine Team. Being awarded the Safe Sports School Award represents that commitment to the athletes. Being recognized by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association is a great reward for all of the hard work by so many people at our school. I am incredibly proud to be a part of the great team we have here at CHS. It truly is an honor and a joy to contribute to Kahok success,” said CHS Athletic Trainer Amanda Baugher.
