Learn Rugby Specify First Aid with Action Plus

Around a quarter of all rugby players in a season will experience some kind of injury. It should come as no surprise considering that rugby is a contact sport that involves heavy physical activity such as rough tackles and sprinting. As a result, it’s ideal to have some kind of rugby specific first aid training to help deal with any potential injuries that could occur during a match or training. Our rugby specific courses are designed to help with you all types of rugby injuries such as the following:

Muscular Strains
Overuse injuries
Head injuries

At Action Plus First Aid, we provide effective rugby specific first aid training in a friendly and relaxed environment. It’s ideal for anyone managing a small or larger rugby team and the skills are transferable to other first aid professions. Whether you manage a team of rugby players or work at a leisure club that occasionally hosts rugby players, these are exceptionally useful skills to have. We also offer a range of other first aid treatment lessons such as sports first aid.

With how common injuries can occur during rugby training and matches, we believe that every team should have a dedicated professional that can help deal with emergency medical situations to prevent players from suffering long-term injuries that are left unchecked. It’s also important to learn about injury prevention strategies to ensure that all players know the correct tackling and falling techniques that will put them at less risk of suffering an injury.

If you’ve ever been a part of a medical emergency and felt helpless, then learning rugby specific first aid skills can be a blessing for both you and your team of players.
