SAFETY PROGRAM (ASAP)


Long the pacesetter in youth sports safety, Little League has again taken the lead with the development of ASAP (A Safety Awareness Program). With the help of corporate sponsors Musco Lighting and AIG Companies, ASAP has created a network of more than 5600 safety officers working together for safety.

ASAP is a grass roots program based on communication of ideas. Leagues across the country contribute their safety ideas to ASAP News, a colorful, monthly newsletter. Safety officers can then find out what their peers are doing to make things "safer for the kids."

A safety officer in Georgia may see what a Nebraska league did to maintain safety during a heat wave. A safety officer in California whose concession stand is less than orderly may use the plan for concession stand safety submitted by a New Jersey league.

Introduced in 1994, ASAP has already increased Little League's overall safety awareness and reduced insurance costs for participating leagues. This summer, the annual ASAP Awards will recognize the leagues with the best safety programs.

For more ASAP information, call the ASAP Hotline at 800-811-7443 or E-Mail your request . Be sure to include your name and postal address in addition to your e-mail address. You can also access the League Safety Officer Program Kit right here on the Little League Web Site!
