As a coach, there’s a good chance you’ll be first on the scene when one of your athletes falls ill or suffers an injury. Are you prepared to take action in a medical emergency?

The Sport First Aid, Fifth Edition Online Course provides detailed action steps for the care and prevention of more than 110 sport-related injuries and illnesses. It covers procedures for conducting emergency action steps and providing life support; performing the physical assessment; administering first aid for bleeding, tissue damage, and unstable injuries; moving an injured athlete; and returning athletes to play.

The fifth edition also explains the latest CPR techniques from the American Heart Association; guidelines for the prevention, recognition, and treatment of concussion from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; and guidelines for the prevention of dehydration and heat illness from the National Athletic Trainers’ Association.

Beyond simply treating injuries and illnesses, Sport First Aid seeks to prevent them from occurring in the first place. Included are strategies for reducing athletes’ risk of injury or illness, such as establishing a school-based medical team, implementing preseason conditioning programs, creating safe playing environments, planning for weather emergencies, ensuring proper fitting and use of protective equipment, enforcing proper sport skills and safety rules, and developing a medical emergency plan.

The course is based on the Sport First Aid textbook and features 60 minutes of video depicting various first-response scenarios; interactive activities and quizzes; sample forms, checklists, assessments, and safety plans that you can download and print; and a 75-question online test.

With Sport First Aid, you will be prepared to make critical decisions and respond appropriately when faced with athletes’ injuries and illnesses.

The Sport First Aid, Fifth Edition Online Course is used and recognized by numerous state high school associations and school districts as meeting coaching education requirements.
