Youth Sports Safety and
Concussion Awareness


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are following all federal, state, and CDC guidelines and mandates. Health and safety are at the core of our mission, and it is our duty to be proactive in reducing the spread of this illness to protect our most vulnerable community members.

To this end we have canceled our largest fundraising event of the year, Blue Jean Ball & Benefit, and will be moving to a live webinar format for our annual conference, Brain Trust 2020. We rely on major events such as these to fund our mission and help us place athletic trainers in local high schools to prevent and manage injuries and concussions for student athletes. We are certain that, in time, school and sports programs will resume, but WE NEED YOUR HELP to ensure that we are here when they do.

Please consider donating today. Your support, at any level, makes a difference to kids in Central Oregon. Thank you.

We LOVE to see young athletes participate in sports and stay ACTIVE, but sport injuries and CONCUSSIONS are sometimes unavoidable.

For this reason, The Center Foundation works with youth, schools, and parents to IMPROVE awareness, EDUCATE the community, and MANAGE concussions and other sports injuries properly. In fact, The Center Foundation and our certified athletic trainers are in eight local high schools across Central Oregon to SUPPORT families and young athletes - keeping kids safe in sports.


Promoting the safety of our kids through access to sports medicine services and education.

To this end, we provide certified athletic trainers in Central Oregon high schools. Not only do they keep our young athletes safe and healthy, but they also educate students, parents, and coaches on injury prevention. In short, our athletic trainers are first responders - keeping kids safe in sports.
