PIRATES FIRST AID COURSE 2017

The much anticipated EFR Course for 2017 now has a venue and course dates for this year. There are two courses on offer: This year we will run only the full EFR course but have plans for a refresher course at the beginning of next season. 

Whilst the courses are open to all, this is a must have for all Head Coaches and Team First Aiders, is very important for coaches and is a great course for all parents, players and friends of the Club.

Overview

Accidents happen and they are a fact of life. Rugby is a contact sport and as such the risk of incidents goes up. However incidents can happen in all sports and in all facets of your daily life. As a coach, referee, trainer, manager, neighbour or parent the responsibility for being able to provide initial care lies with you. At tournaments and on tours the club will in general have an appointed First Response person (EFR or EMT) with a wider range of skills, however they often need help and as such trained assistance is better than untrained assistance - that said all help is always most welcome.

What will you learn

How to deal with the type of injuries and medical emergencies that can happen during sporting activities, at home and in daily life.

Who Should Attend

Anyone involved in sporting activities - from referees and coaches to players, tour managers, mums and dads etc.
