The National Athletic Trainers’ Association Safe Sports School award was given to San Juan Hills High School for their outstanding Athletic Program. SJHHS was awarded this due to excellent care, injury, prevention, and treatment given to its’ athletes.

The National Athletic Trainers’ Association Safe Sports School award is given for schools who promote positive athletic healthcare, encourage safe and appropriate practice and competition facilities, have protocols in place in case of injury or illness, and much more.

SJHHS is honored to receive this First Team recognition from NATA, and we remain committed to keeping our student athletes safe during physical education classes, team practices, and games so they can accomplish their own goals of great competition, winning records, fair sportsmanship, and good health.”

“We remain committed to the health and welfare of young athletes in competitive sports. This award recognizes the contributions and commitment of schools across the country that are implementing safe sports policies and best practices to ensure athletes can do what they love best and have the appropriate care in place to prevent, manage, and treat injuries should they occur,” said the National Athletic Trainers’ Association President Scott Sailor, EdD, ATC.

The NATA gave the award to SJHHS because the Stallion’s athletic program encourages healthy behavior and provides suitable care for their athletes.

“SJHHS is honored to receive this First Team recognition from NATA, and we remain committed to keeping our student athletes safe during physical education classes, team practices, and games so they can accomplish their own goals of great competition, winning records, fair sportsmanship, and good health. Our goal is to lead our athletics program to the highest safety standards for our players,” said SJHHS Athletic Trainer, Micah Ohlen.

“I think we have an advantage over every other school in the district. We have Micah Ohlen who is an unbelievably dedicated Athletic Trainer. He is extremely committed to the school and the players and his own education and advancing that. He has brought a culture of safety to this school that’s really unparalleled. I try to keep kids safe with shoulder pads and stuff, but reality is he is putting kids back together out there” said Athletic Equipment Manager, Ralf Mattera.
