Korey Stringer Institute: Progress Made in High School Sports Safety Policies - August 13, 2020 - Combined Reports - UConn Communications
As part of the TUFSS initiative, KSI hosts state meetings and invites local high school sports leaders and state legislatures to engage in conversation and help encourage the adoption of health and safety policies that benefit the wellbeing of high school student athletes. In the coming years, KSI will visit all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
Following KSI’s visit to Louisiana, a sweeping student athlete safety bill was signed into law by Gov. John Bel Edwards on June 15, 2020. It mandates emergency action plans, requires heat acclimatization and the use of wet bulb globe temperature (WBGT) to monitor environmental conditions.
