Check your First Aid Kits

Another season has come and gone and it is once again time to check your First Aid Kits. Our Safety Chair recommends that you check all First Aid Kits, even the one’s provided by the facility to make sure they are properly stocked and nothing is expired.

Recently at a season ending meet in another LSC, when the first aid kit was needed, it was found to have expired liquid bandage solution, just when it was needed. Let’s make sure that this doesn’t happen to us in the coming Short Course season.

Starre Haney, AZSI’s Safety chair recommend that clubs buy a number of the smallest bottles possible of liquid bandage due to the physical contact required to apply liquid bandage and the chance of contamination of the brush. We recommend that you do the same with antibiotic ointment and to make sure that you check the injured for known allergies before applying the antibiotic.

Concussions in Youth Sports

ALTHOUGH NOT COMMON IN SWIMMING, CONCUSSIONS CAN OCCUR IN THE WATER AND IN DRYLAND ACTIVITIES.

A New FREE CDC Online Training Helps Prepare Coaches and Parents in Less than 30 Minutes.

Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports is a free online training available to coaches, parents, and others helping to keep athletes safe from concussion. The training was developed by CDC’s Injury Center in partnership and other leading organizations. It features interviews with leading experts and interactive exercises to help coaches and parents recognize a concussion and know how to respond if their athlete might have a concussion.

Coaches and Parents Will Learn:

  • To understand a concussion and the potential consequences of this injury,
  • To recognize concussion signs and symptoms and how to respond,
  • About steps for returning to activity (play and school) after a concussion, and
  • To focus on prevention and preparedness to help keep athletes safe season-to-season.

Remember, if you think an athlete has a concussion:

  • Do not assess it yourself,
  • Take him/her out of play, and
  • Seek the advice of a health care professional.

MRSA Information for Swimmers & Parents

As with any infection, MRSA can be very serious and, if left untreated, potentially deadly, but it can generally be treated with specific antibiotic therapy.
