Since more than 60 percent of sport injuries occur during practice, coaches need to know how to respond to injuries and provide appropriate first aid. Under the direction of the United States Olympic Committee, the Red Cross Sport Safety Course was created to teach school and club sport coaches how to be safe, capable, and effective first responders to injured athletes. During this Gym.Net course, coaches learn to develop a plan for emergency procedures, reduce the number of avoidable injuries, recognize serious and minor injuries; provide proper, immediate care for common sports injuries, and respond to life-threatening emergencies.

Take TIME OUT to Protect your athletes!
