INJURY PREVENTION:
Tips from OPA Athletic Trainers

OPA is dedicated to preventing sports injuries and helping young athletes stay at the top of their game. Our full-time certified athletic trainers work with student-athletes and coaches throughout the Anchorage School District and many community sports associations. These individuals are among the very few ATCs in Alaska and work with athletes every day to prevent injuries, recover from them, and get back in the game as quickly and safely as possible. They’re also among Alaska’s leading advocates for concussion prevention and return-to-play protocols. To learn more about our ATCs, click here.

In this section you’ll find general injury prevention guidelines — whether you’re a an athlete, an active individual or a parent — along with specific information, articles and advice from our trainers.
