Prompt and effective First Aid for sports environments can make a hugely positive difference to the time and ability of an athlete to recover from injury. Sports clubs, gyms and health clubs will also be governed by a range of regulations and best practice publications that vary according to activity. Synergy can provide training to cover first aid for sports and health clubs; including businesses, small voluntary organisations providing sports activities for children and individuals maintaining registration as coaches, trainers and referees.

Whilst these courses cover basic life support, the focus is on managing incidents and competently assessing whether a casualty should be returning to activity.
Suitability of Courses to cover First Aid for Sports
The Sports First Aid course is ideal for therapists, coaches, Pilates teachers, and Personal Trainers and anyone working in a sports environment with adults and children.
The Emergency First Aid at Work is a one day course covering care of the unconscious casualty as well as commonly occurring injuries in adults and children. Our course can add additional areas to cover head and spinal injuries, breaks and sprains, as well as asthma and other elements of First Aid crucial to first aid for sports, although we may need to add extra time for these topics.
