Injury Prevention and Management

Injury Prevention and Management

Up to 1,000,000 sport related injuries occur each year, with 50% of those considered as being preventable.  With sports injuries costing around $1.65 billion each year, your club can help reduce these numbers by implementing some simple, yet effective policies and procedures.

Sports Medicine Australia has some fantastic resources, as does SmartPlay and ClubHelp.

The club featured in the video below used some of these resources to help improve the safety of its members, which results in more people being able to participate each week.
