Several Jacksonville organizations are working together to place certified athletic trainers in Duval County high schools.

The Jacksonville Jaguars, Jacksonville University, Jacksonville Sports Medicine Program and the NFL are some of the partners behind the initiative.

Mayor Lenny Curry celebrated the new trainers at EverBank Field this morning.

“If parents know that when their kids are in high school, the athletics are safe, the more likely [they are] to encourage them to play sports,” Curry said.


  Mayor Lenny Curry and the Jacksonville Sports Council announced Wednesday afternoon the U.S. Naval Academy’s 2016 home game against Notre Dame will take place next year at EverBank Field.

In even years, when the Navy is the home team, the Notre Dame football game is moved to a neutral site due to large crowds. Next year, the Navy will host the Fighting Irish at EverBank Field.

As thunder boomed in the stadium, Chairman of the Jacksonville Sports Council Carl Cannon made the announcement.

Jacksonville’s EverBank Field is opening its doors to families for this year’s Healthy Kids Day celebration on May 2.

The day is a national YMCA initiative designed to get kids moving and learning especially during summer vacation.

Jacksonville Armada F.C.

The Jacksonville Armada soccer team kicks off its first regular season in the North American Soccer League this Saturday with a match against F.C. Edmonton.

Not only does the Armada want to win on the soccer pitch, the team wants to win in the stands by setting a new NASL attendance record.

WJCT sports analyst Cole Pepper says that’s entirely possible.

“The record is 14,593 set last year in Ottowa when Ottowa opened up their new place. So remember that the Armada drew 13,934 for the pre-season opener at EverBank Field, so it wouldn’t take much more than that.”

A much-anticipated decision about divvying up sales-tax dollars to sports-stadium projects was handed-off to the full Legislature on Thursday.

And now, a process that was intended to reducing lobbying may do the opposite.

The Joint Legislative Budget Commission, comprised of seven senators and seven representatives, agreed to move any funding decisions regarding the stadiums --- Daytona International Speedway, the Miami Dolphins' home of Sun Life Stadium, EverBank Field in Jacksonville and a soccer stadium in Orlando --- to the regular legislative session.
