Player’s Contract with the Team Poster

Safety in team sports is a priority for coaches and athletic trainers. Wanting to stay in the game, student athletes may ignore early signs and symptoms of concussion, illness or injury. While players may observe changes or warning signs in teammates, they may not report this out of loyalty to teammates. The Player’s Contract with the Team Poster is a tool for coaches and athletic staff to make student athletes aware of guidelines for their safety and well-being as well as that of their teammates.

Produced as 14” x 20” posters, they are designed for posting in locker rooms, athletic offices, and team areas. Five guidelines for safe playing are listed with instructions for players to sign their names indicating their acceptance and commitment to safety.
