Would you ever, ever drop your child off at a pool without a lifeguard? Then why do you drop off your kids at the football, soccer, basketball, or baseball fields without the knowledge that someone is trained to take care of them if they got injured?

According to Safe Kids USA, 1.35 million youths a year have serious sports injuries. More than a million times a year, or about every 25 seconds, a young athlete visits a hospital emergency room for a sports-related injury. Source

 

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that more than half of all youth sports injuries are preventable.

Steve – 

 

On behalf of Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) and its 25 high schools and 39 middle schools, I would like to express my appreciation for your assistance in providing for a safer athletic environment. You have provided valuable advice on numerous occasions, and have assisted in implementing a comprehensive weight certification program for wrestling. You have also assisted for many years in certifying MCPS coaches in CPR. 

 

But most of all, I appreciate your assistance over the past nine years in instructing aspiring athletic coaches in the course Care and Prevention of Injuries. In this capacity, you have instructed approximately 150 coaches per year, over 1,000 MCPS paid and volunteer coaches over the better part of a decade.

 

In addition to important safety principals, you have provided valuable instruction on proper training techniques. Again, thank you for your dedication and professionalism.
