First Aid in Sports (FIS)

First Aid in Sports (FIS)

When athletes become ill or injured during practice or competition, coaches and trainers need to know how to respond. Whether on the court, on the field, at the pool, or in the gym, coaches and trainers must be prepared to handle the common injuries and illnesses they will likely encounter while coaching their sport. AR First Aid In Sports teaches coaches and trainers how to administer basic first aid to sick and injured athletes as well as ways to prevent illnesses and injuries from occurring.
