Sports Medicine & The IHSA Mission

In keeping with the intent of the IHSA mission statement, the IHSA Sports Medicine Advisory Committee is committed to offering information and guidance to member schools, their coaching staffs, and their student-athletes on those topics which most immediately impact the welfare of all those involved in interscholastic competition in Illinois.

In order to ensure that, ". . . interscholastic athletics and activities . . .enrich the educational experience," it is paramount that student-athletes train and condition themselves within safe guidelines that will allow them to perform at their highest levels.  Providing coaches and administrators with the practical knowledge necessary to see that athletes realize this level of success shall guide the SMAC in its endeavors.
