ATLAS Survey will be closed June 1 - August 1
2019-20 NATA/KSI ATLAS Secondary School survey is open...Click Here. If you work in the secondary school setting, please take a few minutes and complete this years survey! Even if you have completed it in years past, please take a few minutes to take it again for this school year. The survey changes annually to help collect updated AT contact information, as well as other information about your school/program.
If you don't work in the secondary school setting, but have colleagues that do, please spread the word and encourage them to take the survey as well. The more info we can collect, the better we can map and understand this setting across Michigan!

MHSAA Concussion Care Insurance Benefit
Continuing in the 2018-19 school year, the MHSAA is providing supplemental insurance for the payment of medical expenses related to concussions. The injury must have occurred during a MHSAA activity of a member school. The policy limit is $25000.00 for each occurrence.
The program intends to assure that member MHSAA student athletes revived prompt and professional medical services for head injury even if the athlete is uninsured or under-insured.
The insurance offered by MHSAA through K and K company is a secondary carrier. This means when the primary insurance is used then the school's athletic insurance (if a coverage is provided) is used then and only then the MHSAA policy used to pay remaining costs.
So in fact you could have 3 insurances paying for costs related to concussion injury.
See your Athletic Director or Athletic Trainer for additional information about the program.

The MATS Secondary School AT Committee is working to make the MI AT Helmet Sticker Project available to you in the near future!
We were glad to see the interest when we started this project at the MHSAA Football Finals held at Ford Field Nov 23-24.
We will post further information once it is available, we still have a few details to finalize first.
THANKS to the MHSAA for partnering with us and allowing us to roll out this initiative at Ford Field this November!
