Toronto, November 10, 2019 – NASHA Sports, a 10-year-old company that has worked to provide safety to hockey players through its Sanctioning of Members of a great many Spring Hockey Teams, Hockey Schools, Independent Tournaments and Leagues in Canada, today announced a new partnership to take the health and safety of players to the next level. NASHA Sports is a leader in the off-season and Independent Hockey.
“NASHA is excited to be working on this initiative with Players Health. In a sport where risks are high for injury, we believe we can lead the way in providing the Players Health program to our Membership. Health and Safety have always been a top concern for NASHA members. This is another tool to support NASHA Members across the country” said Mark Hetherman – Executive Director at the NASHA Sports Brand.
Hetherman continued to say “when we moved into the off-season Hockey business years ago as an operator of a large Spring/Summer Hockey Organization we were very concerned about player protection, we recognized that players were mostly unprotected outside of Winter Hockey. Now we want to be a leader in this space. As a proud partner of Player’s Health, this association allows us to be innovative by creating a user-friendly online risk management tool and establishing new standards of health and safety in hockey”.
Player’s Health 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.
“We are extremely excited to partner with NASHA Sports who embody our vision for making sports safer for young athletes. As a former player for the Calgary Stampeders, Canadian Football League gave me the opportunity 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.”
Hetherman stated that many details will follow in the next few weeks as we drive towards spring 2020.
