First Aid for Football Coaches
The FA provide a first aid course for coaches in order to give them the knowledge and skills to recognise and manage common injuries sustained in football and administer immediate non emergency first aid. The course gives coaches the understanding of when they should carry out first aid and when they should call for help.
The aim of the course is to give the coach or nominated first aider the skills required to identify injuries and provide a level of first aid to prevent these injuries worsening.
To get involved you will need to contact your clubs first aid representative or local FA.
It is recommended that each and every coach carries a first aid kit with the minimum FA requirements. These are available from our first aid department at The Soccer Store.
