On February 1, Bowie received the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) Safe Sports School award for its Athletic Training Program.

“James Bowie High School is honored to receive this 1st Team recognition from NATA,” said Pablo Riera LAT, ATC and Brittani Thibodeaux LAT, ATC.

The award is very prestigious and difficult to achieve since the list of requirements is quite extensive.

“This award recognizes the contributions and commitment of schools across the country that are implementing safe sports policies and [the] best practices,” said NATA President Scott Sailor, EdD, ATC.

Such contributions include, but are not limited to, creating a positive athletic health care administration system, providing or coordinating pre-participation physical examinations, and promoting safe and appropriate practice and competition facilities.

“Our goal is to lead our athletics program to the highest safety standards for our players,” said Riera and Thibodeaux.

Bowie’s Athletic Training Program is very dedicated to keeping our school’s students healthy and safe when participating in sports.

“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,” said Riera and Thibodeaux.

Health is, and will always be, Bowie’s Athletic Training Program’s number one concern and priority.

“We remain committed to health and welfare of young athletes in competitive sports,” said Sailor.
