As a teacher or coach, have you ever wondered what to do immediately when an injury happens to your athlete or how can you decide whether your athlete can return to to his/her sport after the injury? Then this workshop is for you. It is common knowledge that with any sports, there is always a risk of injury. At the same time, performance and enjoyment of any sports can be marred by an injury. Knowing what to do when an injury happens can be crucial to better recovery and eventual return to the sport.

With our youths getting more involved in competitive sports and with our school sports scene getting more competitive, it is advisable for us, as coaches and teachers, to learn more about properly managing their injuries to maximise the athlete’s potential contribution to the sport and encourage the athletes to continue the sport as a form of an active lifestyle. Improper initial management has been known to be the biggest cause of an athlete staying on the sideline for a long time. It’s always frustrating when we are not able to select our best athlete or team due to these injuries.

When an injury has been managed quickly and appropriately, it promotes better recovery and a safe return to sports. In addition, preventive management like sports taping and rehabilitative exercises helps to lower the risk of a recurrent injury.

In this module, we will revise basic principles and learn intermediate principles of sports injury prevention and management. These include management concepts such as TOTAPS assessment, R.I.C.E.R, H.A.R.M as well as preventive exercises and sports taping for the shoulder, wrist, thumb, fingers, knee and ankle. Quick assessment tips for common injuries would also be shared. At the end of this module, participants will be able to:

  1. Appreciate the principles of sports injury management
  2. Appreciate the principles of sports injury prevention and rehabilitation
  3. Appreciate the role of sports taping in prevention and rehabilitation of sports injury
  4. Demonstrate an assessment of a sports injury
  5. Demonstrate proficiency in using an injury record form
  6. Demonstrate proficiency in sports taping

Course Duration:  8 hours (2 sessions of 4 hours each).
