In developing an innovative injury tracking and analysis solution focused on seeking the best health and wellness outcomes for all youth athletes we are at the vanguard of advocating for our greatest resource, which is our children. Our mission is to provide full transparency on youth sport injuries, provide detailed analysis of both short and long-term trends with our partners at the nationally-recognized Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, then provide both detailed preventative training for volunteer coaches to prevent injuries from occurring as well as to advocate for specific rule tweaks and changes to eliminate identified dangers in sports. Such an awakening of advocacy for our children’s health and wellness forms the bedrock that has come from our daily life experiences as parents, coaches, physicians and sports organization leaders. The founding partners at Transparent Sports believe that it is vital to infuse positive can-do ideals with our corporate philosophy.
Transparent Sports empowers national, regional, and local youth sports organizations with enterprise-level tools to seek the best health and wellness outcomes for their youth athletes. With media reporting daily on athlete injuries it is critical to be on the vanguard of advocacy for the health of our youth athletes, and only Transparent Sports provides this solution.
- Full access to the Transparent Data Dashboard, which allows league execs (and any other designated parties) to view never-before-available data reports regarding youth sports injuries. Users can create visual data graphs, and parse the injury data by zip code, date range, sport, etc. (even by weather!). Consider how productive your next organization-wide meeting could be with access to data like this.
- The most up to date coach trainings available, created by our partners at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, and featuring content that is driven by what the data actually shows, rather than by assumptions and guesswork. For example, if the data were to hypothetically show that cold, wet weather was directly correlated with high-knee sprains in soccer players, our always-updated trainings would reflect that correlation and communicate effective strategies for injury prevention. Our trainings prepare coaches for what is actually happening out there, taught to them by real physicians at Cincinnati Children’s.
- Being a part of the largest, most important clinical study ever conducted on youth athletics. To date, the largest study on youth sports injuries included data from only a couple thousand athletes. Now that is being dramatically surpassed. Transparent Sports along with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center’s Sports Medicine and Research Group are currently undertaking the largest-ever clinical study on youth sports injuries (Collected data is always 100% HIPAA compliant and 100% athlete-anonymous). We know, that when it comes to youth injury prevention, a clear picture of what’s really happening on the field is key if we ever hope to “bend the injury curve.” We are also applying the power of the IBM Watson AI platform to bring cognitive analysis to the data. This provides us with the ability to identify previously hidden relationships in the data and is a key tool in our goal to reduce youth sport injuries by 50%. Taking part in a study this important demonstrates to your parents that your organization is fully committed to providing the safest possible environment for their children.
