An inter-association task force has published recommendations for best practices regarding preventing sudden death in secondary school athletics programs. “This document provides a roadmap for policy considerations regarding health and safety issues for secondary school athletes.” The guidelines address the leading causes of sudden death within the population –  head and neck injuries, exertional heat stroke, sudden cardiac arrest, and exertional sickling – and offers “information to address the infrastructure issues and barriers that can introduce the most risk to athletes.”
