NASHA Sports, a leader in the off-season and independent Hockey protection, leads the way in taking players’ Health and Safety to the next level. “NASHA is excited to be working on this initiative with Players Health. In a sport with a high risk for injury, we believe we can lead the way in providing a Players Health program to our Membership. Health and Safety have always been a top concern for NASHA members during the Hockey off-season and while participating in independent Hockey.
This is another tool to support teams and associations across the country,” said Mark Hetherman – Executive Director at the NASHA Sports Brand.
Hetherman continued, “we recognized many years ago that players mainly were unprotected while playing for Independent Hockey Teams, Hockey Schools, Hockey Camps, Independent Tournaments and Leagues.
We moved into the off-season Hockey business when we operated a large Spring Hockey Organization, and we were very concerned about player protection.
Today we are recognized as a leader in this space.
As a proud partner of Player’s Health, this association allows us to innovate by creating user-friendly online risk management tools and establishing new health and safety standards in hockey”.
Player’s Health’s Circle of Care Risk Management Suite is an interactive, digital risk management platform to quickly assess and provide guidance on the best care for the Health and well-being of youth athletes. The Player’s Health Circle of Care includes injury protocols; rehab assignments; and private, anonymous abuse and misconduct reporting.
The platform also has a PIPEDA-compliant interface simplifying the flow of youth athlete health information between the coach, parent, and healthcare provider.
Tyrre Burks said, “We are extremely excited to partner with NASHA sports which embodies our vision for making sports safer for young athletes. As a former player for the Calgary Stampeders, Canadian Football League allowed me to live out my dream and understand the tools needed to make the sport safer,” said Tyrre Burks, Founder and CEO of Player’s Health. “Together, we are committed to providing all sanctioned members of NASHA Sports, regardless of size, status and geography, with risk services through challenging issues,”
