BETTER SPORTS FOR KIDS, BETTER KIDS FOR LIFE!

 
The National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) helps to improve the experiences of the more than 30 million younth who participate in out-of-school sport by:
1. Developing quality training for coaches, parents, officials and administrators
2. Providing continuing education resources
 
 
NAYS programs are provided at the local level through dynamic partnerships with more than 3,000 community-based organizations, which includes parks and recreation departments, Boys and Girls Clubs, Police Athletic Leagues, YMCAs/YWCAs, and other independent youth service groups throughout the country. NAYS also has a strong presence on U.S. military installations worldwide, including every Air Force and Army base.

 

Emergency Action Plans (EAPs)

Athletic injuries may occur at any time and during any activity. Youth sports staff and volunteer coaches, must be prepared to emergency situtations. This preparation involves the development of an Emergency Action Plan (EAP). This includes, but is not limited to, the proper coverage of events, maintenance of appropriate emergency equipment and supplies and utilization of appropriate emergency medical personnel.

Although the initial creation of an EAP may be intensive, it could save someone’s life.
