WHO WE PLAY FOR

We all have someone or something that motivates us – it’s who we play for.
Our motivation is to help prevent sudden cardiac arrest, the #1 cause of death for student athletes.

ECGs ARE EFFECTIVE

The standard school physical just isn't enough to find problems in a student's heart. More athletes die from Sudden Cardiac Arrest than any other cause, and most show no symptoms and have no history of heart problems. Studies show physicals are only 1% effective, but adding a simple electrocardiogram (ECG, also known as EKG) catches up to 94% of heart issues.

ECGs ARE SIMPLE 

Who We Play For brings our equipment and trained staff to your school. Each ECG test is completely painless and easy to conduct - it only takes about 3-4 minutes per person. ECGs are interpreted by our staff Cardiologists who have specific training in reading student athlete ECGs. You’ll get the results back within 3 business days, along with information to share with the families of those students who might need follow up care.     

FAQ

ECGs ARE COST-EFFECTIVE

As a non-profit, we do everything we can to keep costs down. In many cases the heart screening is completely free, thanks to grants and donations. We never charge more than $15/person and we never turn anyone away who can't afford it.
