Conway High School has earned the distinction as a Safe Sports School from the National Athletic Trainers’ Association. The Safe Sports School distinction is presented to schools that have systemic programs to champion the health, safety, injury prevention and treatment of student athletes in secondary athletic programs.

Having met or exceeded all nine of the criteria as a Safe Sports School, Conway High School earned the added recognition of being named a “1st Team” award recipient. Conway High School’s Safe Sports School distinction is renewal from 2014 and extends through 2020.

“Conway is honored to receive this 1st Team recognition from NATA once again, 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 Dr. Jim Berry, ATC, SCAT, NREMT, Head Athletic Trainer at Conway High School.
