In order to combat injuries in youth sports, a new Alabama law mandates each city in the state offer sports safety training to youth coaches and volunteers. On Dec. 17, the city of Vestavia Hills passed an ordinance partnering with the Coach Safely Foundation, which successfully lobbied for the law, in order to offer that training to coaches and volunteers.
