TSATA Official Statement on “Friday Night Tykes”

Texas State Athletic Trainers’ Association Official Statement On ‘Friday Night Tykes’

In support of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association statement from January 2014, the TSATA would like to additionally comment regarding this issue. In Texas, as across the country, athletic trainers work hard to keep athletes safe at all levels of competition. Player safety is first and foremost in each healthcare provider’s mind, and the TSATA is also deeply disappointed with the Esquire Network’s decision to air a show that demonstrates such recklessness and disdain for safety. The television show ‘Friday Night Tykes’ undermines the great efforts athletic trainers make in communities across the country to provide excellent healthcare and safety. It is our hope that media will use its platform to positively influence youth sports through proper education, portrayal of safe sports environments for all children, and raising awareness for the employment of athletic trainers in all settings to care for the needs of student athletes.
