Mission Statement

At a time when many of this country’s high school students are at risk from the negative influences of society, high school sports provide a valuable model for social interaction and team building. The West Coast Sports Medicine Foundation – Team to Win program is more important today than ever before. Higher absentee rates, gun violence, obesity and less money for after school programs, in addition to many families having lost their health insurance or the rise of cost of insurance, we feel the WCSMF Team to Win program is even that more critical today, to the students of Team to Win.

The WCSMF is multifaceted and includes many programs:

  • Team to Win high school outreach program
  • Fellowship Program (Orthopedic and Sports Medicine)
  • Mentoring Educational Sports Medicine Program
  • Peer Reviewed Research and Publications
  • College Scholarship Program, Scholar Athlete Program
  • Injury Tracking and Surveillance Study
  • Sports Medicine Internship program

Team up with Team to Win

As the public school system in California continues to suffer cutbacks, Team to Win and the West Coast Sports Medicine Foundation (WCSMF) become more critical. Students learn how to set goals and meet challenges through organized athletic participation. These students are less likely to use drugs or join a gang and are more likely to graduate from high school and pursue higher education. WCSMF programs provide medical care, education and Certified Athletic Trainers that allow student athletes to stay in the game. Team to Win is more important today than ever to families without medical insurance, and to high schools that can’t afford on-site sports injury care. Find out how you can get involved and help Team to Win team up with high school sports.
