Sports First Aid and Injury Prevention was developed to help coaches and athletic trainers manage the common emergencies that they will likely encounter while coaching their sport. When athletes become ill or injured during practice or competition, coaches and athletic trainers need to know how to respond. Whether on the court, on the field, at the pool, or in the gym, coaches and trainers must be prepared to handle the common injuries and illnesses they
will likely encounter while coaching their sport. Sports First Aid and Injury Prevention teaches coaches and trainers how to administer basic first aid to sick and injured athletes as well as ways to prevent illnesses and injuries from occurring.
The course includes coverage of the phases of injury and the injury prevention model, prevention tips for sports-related injuries common to specific sports, and appropriate
treatment for common injuries and illness.
