Community Engagement

Through outreach programs and partnerships, we promote the powerful, positive impact of sport in the New Orleans community and beyond.

Tulane Institute of Sports Medicine – Athletic Training Outreach Program

The Tulane Institute of Sports Medicine operates the Athletic Training Outreach Program, which taps directly into the New Orleans community. Athletic trainers work with more than 15 local high schools to provide health physicals and sports medicine care and coverage, often at no cost.

Major League Baseball Youth Academy of New Orleans

The Tulane School of Law works with Major League Baseball Youth Academy of New Orleans, where local athletes ages 13 to 18 learn the business side of baseball by getting “inside” the boardrooms where CEOs manage salary caps and player salaries are negotiated. The program brings in guest speakers, including sports agents, athletes and law students, to teach and inspire students.

Safe Kids

Safe Kids Louisiana is led by Tulane University Hospital & Clinic, which provides staff, operation support and other resources to keep kids safe. Programs include car-seat checkups, safety workshops and sports clinics that help prevent childhood injuries.

Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) – Medical Partner

In June 2018, the Center for Sport was selected to be the lead medical partner in the state for LHSAA. Through this partnership, the Center for Sport will review concussion protocols, assist with developing emergency action plans and provide additional services and resources to high school athletes in the state of Louisiana.

Special Olympics Louisiana / Unified College Intramural League

The partnership between Tulane’s Sports Law Program and Special Olympics led to the first Unified Sports Intramural leagues in the state, as well as the inaugural Tulane-Special Olympics New Orleans field day in 2017.

Athletes for Hope

Tulane University and Tulane Athletics are partnered with Athletes for Hope to educate, inspire and connect student athletes with local charities.

National Youth Sports Strategy Champion Program

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recognizes Tulane Center for Sport as one of the first organizations to join the National Youth Sports Strategy(NYSS) Champion program. NYSS aims to unite U.S. youth sports culture around a shared vision: that one day all youth will have the opportunity, motivation, and access to play sports — regardless of their race, ethnicity, sex, ability, or ZIP code.
