  • 42 of the 77 counties in the state of Oklahoma currently have zero athletic trainers or sports medicine presence.
  • Sports injuries accounted for 20 percent of all injury-related emergency department visits for children ages 6-19, with national medical costs for sports injury emergency department visits exceeding $935 million each year.
