YMCA emphasizes safety in sports

April 10, 2013
The Marietta Times

The Marietta Family YMCA places a large emphasis on sports safety in all of their sports programs. The YMCA believes that putting safety first in youth sports boosts trust levels between participants and their families and the organization and YMCA staff; creating a secure and confidence-building learning environment. In order to ensure safety during its programs, the YMCA modifies and teaches its sports at age-appropriate levels and provides constant supervision to ensure that training levels are gradual and that no unsafe activities occur. In order to make sure all programs are safe for its participants, the YMCA collects medical waivers, inspects its facility spaces to ensure that they are sufficient to participate in, regularly inspects its equipment, and has risk management plans set in place from the start of the programs.
