We get it. Besides spending thousands of hours on courts and fields from recreational leagues for 5-year-olds up to elite level professional and Olympic athletes, we are also coaches and parents of young athletes ourselves.
During a practice or a game, the coach only has a small amount of time to devote to the evaluation of an injured athlete. You may have a trainer on hand for some games but often you will not, and what about the practice sessions when injuries also occur? If you're lucky, you can pass off the athlete to a parent on your team that just happens to be a doctor, nurse, or paramedic. But what about all the other times when there's no one you can turn to for help (which is almost all of the time...)? You need to have the knowledge already, and be able to apply it in every situation. There's no time to turn to a book or access a website through a mobile app.
In about an hour you can learn the key concepts that will make your sideline injury management decisions much more effective. With Sideline Sports Doc you will be able to learn the key concepts in the off-season and be able to apply them during any practice or game setting. The result is that there are much fewer Secondary Injuries, and everyone will be happier when an injury occurs:
Some of the decisions you'll make could occur in tough situations, such as having to remove a star player, or even playing a man down. There might be times when players or parents question your decision to hold a player from practice or games. What we'd like to do is raise your awareness that making a decision in the best interests of the young player's health is the best decision for everyone involved. Managing the injury correctly from the start almost always results in faster return to play than "toughing it out" or "playing through it." Our philosophy is to avoid turning a minor injury into a major injury; the player plays when the time is right.
