Safe Play Act

Safe Play Act Introduced
 
NATA announced the introduction of the Supporting Athletes, Families and Educators to Protect the Lives of Athletic Youth (SAFE PLAY) Act on Tuesday, February 10, 2015.  Presented in the U.S. Senate and in the U.S. House, this legislation helps school districts develop concussion safety while encouraging increased surveillance efforts for life-threatening cardiac conditions in children.  NATA had an integral role in the introduction of this comprehensive legislation, which also recommends a multidisciplinary approach to research and federal support to ensure our student athletes are kept safe in schools.
