OUR MISSION

Participant Safety

We staff athletic trainers at every tournament, club practice, league and camp. We also use the preeminent weather monitoring service—Schneider Electric—for up-to-the-minute info on weather conditions, and provide an opt-in text alert system for program updates.

Emergency Action Plan

Emergency action plans (EAPs) are created for each venue at which we operate. EAPs outline the role of each of our staff members in the event of an emergency so that everyone knows what they’re supposed to do and the situation is handled quickly and effectively.

Weather Safety

NXT subscribes to Schneider Electric’s industry-leading weather monitoring service. Schneider is the official service of the NCAA and is utilized by most MLB organizations. The system virtually monitors every venue where NXT operates and sends automatic text updates to the event director whenever there is a weather threat.

What is an Athletic Trainer?

Athletic trainers are certified and licensed healthcare professionals who are trained in
injury prevention, clinical evaluation and diagnosis, immediate and emergency care, and
treatment and rehabilitation of athletic-related injuries and conditions.
