Coach Safely

Flyer outlining Coach Safely Program

Encore Rehabilitation, Inc. is proud to be the Education and Triage Partner of Alabama’s Coach Safely Foundation!

The Coach Safely Act (HB9), passed by Alabama Legislature, is the first of its kind to address public concerns about sports injuries for younger athletes (14 and younger).  This law  and the Coach Safely Program bring together community youth coaches and experts in the medical field to reduce sports injuries, increase education about injuries, and increase participation in sports activities. The law is administered under the Alabama Department of Public Health and will be piloted this fall. Advocates of the law include Coach Nick Saban of the University of Alabama, Coach Wille Slater of Tuskegee University, and numerous other coaches throughout the state.

One part of the Coach Safely program is an educational course for coaches. The course was developed by Dr. James R. Andrews and the Andrews Research & Education Foundation.  The course covers topics such as concussions; heat and exertion illness; trauma and overuse; sudden cardiac arrest; and emergency action plans.

The Coach Safely Foundation was formed to support the Coach Safely Program and to work with each of the approximately 400 municipalities in the State of Alabama. The Foundation is supported by Children’s of Alabama, Encore Rehabilitation, and ThreatAdvice as well as public and private grants.
