Sport-Specific Option

A sport-specific course can be requested by any organization wishing to offer Sports First Aid training to its members. The sport specific approach not only makes the course more interesting, it ensures the participant has a good understanding of the risks associated with his/her sport and can implement specific injury prevention strategies. Sport-specific courses are available for soccer, football and lacrosse and have also been developed for fitness leaders. Course registration fees vary, depending on the size of the group.
