About at Your Own Risk
A subsidiary of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA), At Your Own Risk aims to educate, provide resources and equip the public to act and advocate for safety in work, life and sport. We believe that without proper safety measures and the appropriate medical personnel, you are left to face the inherent safety risks that could, when properly prepared for, could be reduced or avoided. By employing an athletic trainer you provide a safer approach to work, life, and sport.

Our Safety Goals:
• Appropriate medical coverage and care for student athletes
• Legislation that supports sports safety in high schools
• Education of risk that may exist in your community and ways you can advocate for a safer approach
• Safer work places for employees
