NCYS Forms Health & Safety Advisory Council

The National Council of Youth Sports (NCYS) announces the formation of a Health & Safety Advisory Council (HSAC) which includes Andrew D. Pearle, MD, chief of the HSS Sports Medicine Institute.

The 12-member panel includes nationally recognized experts from many specialty areas including sports medicine, mental health and performance, social and emotional learning, sports science and coaching education.

HSAC members will contribute to NCYS efforts to provide practical and meaningful resources to youth sports parents and other caregivers, coaches and administrators by creating, assessing, amplifying and disseminating content as well as providing guidance on policy.

The Health & Safety Advisory Council is part of an NCYS initiative in a year-long effort focusing on the twin youth sports safety pillars of injury prevention and personal protection.
