What is Sports Trainer Coverage?
Sports Trainers who have current Sports Trainer Level 1 or 2 accreditation’s are on hand to provide First Aid and Sports Trainer services at any sporting event. Our personnel have extensive experience in managing sporting injuries and incidents and are all trained to provide quality, immediate injury care to athletes. Sports Trainers have training in both preventive and injury management taping.
What are the benefits of Sports Trainer Coverage?
As an event organiser, you are well aware of your legal liability. By having a dedicated team of professionals on hand, you can minimise risks and provide medical and first-aid treatment the moment an injury occurs. Our team provides all the relevant medical equipment and supplies required for your event, and wear SMA uniforms so you can identify them easily. You will also have a Sports Medicine Coordinator assigned to your event to look after the administration and logistics involved with the Sports Trainer personnel.
