Minneapolis, December 18, 2019 – Player’s Health is excited to announce hiring Josh Opiola as the Vice President of Risk Services leading the Risk Services division of the organization.
We’re so excited to have Josh’s experience as a part of the Player’s Health family. He brings an incredible amount of expertise in the abuse reporting and prevention field and is integral to our growth and success.CEO Tyrre Burks
Josh joined the Player’s Health team in October 2019 after spending six years as the Director of Risk Management at SportsEngine. With 10+ years of experience in the screening & abuse prevention industry, Josh has dedicated his professional career to ensuring that youth sports best practices are utilized for athlete and organizational safety programs. Josh has helped thousands of organizations navigate through Safe Sport Act Compliance and select the appropriate abuse training services. Josh played a fundamental role in the implementation of abuse prevention strategies including 3 of the top 5 organizations in the National Sports Center “THRIVE” awards.
After working with Player’s Health as a partner for the past 4 years, I fell in love with the mission (create the safest environment possible for our athletes to play the sport they love), as it mirrors my own personal mission. For far too long the voices of the athlete have gone unheard. We have an obligation to empower and educate our athletes, coaches, and parents/volunteers on the best in class abuse prevention strategies in the world. By doing so, we will reduce and hopefully eliminate all forms of abuse in youth sports.Josh Opiola
