Injuries

As the coach you should be prepared to deal with an injury if and when it occurs. SPARC recommends that all coaches have a first aid kit on hand, and that they complete a recognised first aid course.

If the injury is serious, for example a broken bone, neck injury, severe bleeding, or the athlete is knocked unconscious, call for help from a doctor or ambulance.
