MINNEAPOLIS, March 25, 2021 – USA Cheer and Player’s Health are excited to announce a new partnership together. Player’s Health is a risk management and insurance services firm specializing in youth sports organizations and will manage USA Cheer’s athlete safety program with PH Protect.
PH Protect is an application for organizations to manage real-time incident reports and ensure their abuse reporting, incident protocols, and policies are being followed. Athletes, coaches, guardians, and volunteers can use PH Protect as a secure and private way to report abuse, allowing the organization to track everything in a centralized and reliable place. With this application, USA Cheer administrators will have a simple look at the organization’s safety status. In addition, Player’s Health also manages all documents and records on behalf of USA Cheer, ensuring all incidents and abuse reports are handled properly and timely, followed by investigations where necessary.
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with USA Cheer,” said Player’s Health Founder and CEO, Tyrre Burks. “We’re proud of our abuse prevention and reporting tool and believe a caring and passionate organization like USA Cheer will be great in providing such an important piece of technology to so many young athletes.”
“Athlete protection is our highest priority and we are committed to providing the resources necessary to keep kids safe,” said USA Cheer Executive Director Lauri Harris. “Coupled with our existing safe sport education and policies, PH Protect will further strengthen our athlete protection programs, and help our organization continue to provide a healthy environment for our athletes and all those we serve.”
The mission of Player’s Health is to create the safest environment for athletes to participate in the sports they love. We are proud to partner with USA Cheer and continue this mission for the care, support, and safety of all athletes.
