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. 

Based on the 2015 International Consensus Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Cardiac Care (ECC), Sports First Aid and Injury Prevention (Revised) teaches coaches and trainers how to administer basic first aid to sick and injured athletes as well as well ways to prevent illnesses and injuries from occurring.
