Coaches and athletic directors are aware of the inherent risk of injury an athlete faces each time they take the field or the court. With all the research available, it is impossible to ignore. The health and safety of the team must be a priority.
There are a variety of options available for providing first aid support for your athletic events. The best solution for your school depends on your budget and specific needs. To assist you with your decision, I outlined a simple guide that breaks down the key factors to consider for each option.
Schools must be proactive
While this guide isn’t an exhaustive list of all the options available, it’s a good starting place. Having no first aid support at sporting events is not an option. Parents and students are trusting that coaches, schools, and league managers are prepared if the inevitable happens. Please take some time to secure a service to support your athletes’ safety.
