5th Annual Youth Sports Safety Summit
Westin City Center, Washington, DC
March 10-11, 2014
The Alliance has now held five national Youth Sports Safety Summits. Beginning in January 2010, member organizations, legislators, legislative staff and the media have come together to learn about latest trends, and to network and commit to further action.
This annual conference is proving critical to keeping the public’s attention focused on ALL sports injuries, especially catastrophic and fatal events. Attendance aims to help educate policymakers and the public about sudden cardiac arrest, exertional heat illness and sickling, cervical spine and organ injuries, as well as concussion.
