First Aid / Medications

Upon registering your child your permission will be sought for medical attention in the event of injury. This is to ensure that your child receives proper treatment as quickly as possible. The Centre has a First Aid Kit and members will provide some basic first aid until proper medical attention, if required, arrives.

It is quite normal for athletes who may have medical conditions, for instance asthma and epilepsy, to compete. These athletes may sometimes require medication to assist them. Athletes who require medication should be familiar with their medications, how and when to take them, and should have the medications on hand at meetings.

The Centre strongly advocates that parents of athletes who are on medication, be on hand at meetings to assist their children in the taking of their medication in the event such action be required.
