About Court's Corner LA

Court's Corner LA is a nonprofit organization with a mission to provide a continuum of comprehensive sports medicine support to youth athletes and their families through school and community based programs, a professional development internship, and health and wellness clinics. Court’s Corner LA envisions a day when all Los Angeles County youth athletes have access to high quality sports medicine athletic training. Through our core programs, we work to educate school-aged youth on proper nutrition and exercise as well as CPR, first aid and athletic injury prevention and rehabilitation.

With ever expanding data and research on the dangerously high rates of childhood obesity and lack of nutrition among youth in the United States, Court's Corner LA sees itself as a community organization on the front lines offering health and wellness solutions to local youth. Court's Corner LA has decided to focus its current work in Los Angeles County which has a high density of school-aged youth.

Our approach to youth health and wellness has been formulated and honed over fifteen years by Courtney Watson, Founder of Court's Corner LA, during her tenure as a professional sports medicine athletic trainer and health educator. Court's Corner LA seeks to bring this approach to the Los Angeles area by partnering with local schools and community organizations.
