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

and injured athletes as well as well ways to prevent illnesses and
injuries from occurring.
