When parents are asked what the most important aspect is in deciding whether or not to allow their child to play a specific sport, the answer is almost always CHILD SAFETY. Most youth coaches have limited knowledge of basic first-aid and usually the only thing they do get prior to the season is a first-aid kit in their equipment bag. The Trusted Coaches team knows coaches needed to be better equipped, so we teamed up with industry leaders to create a training program that prepares coaches to handle injury situations. Knowledge of basic first aid encourages a safe playing environment by keeping the safety of the athlete as the top priority.
The Trusted Coaches first-aid video was produced by the National Sports Center in Blaine, Minnesota. Collaborating on the project were several medical experts from Fairview Sports and Orthopedic Care. This video is designed to train youth coaches on the basics of first aid, how to respond to common medical issues, when to return athletes to play, and when to call 911. The video will conclude with a quiz.
