Safety

Updated Sunday October 22, 2017 by Kathy Keating.

SPPAA’s coaches and many of our volunteers are required to satisfy comprehensive Diocesan Youth Protection standards.  Dependent upon the specific athletic activity/program, sport-specific training may also be required.

Be you coach, volunteer, parent/guardian or spectator, there is some training which is just good to have in the event it is ever needed:   

                          AED (Automated External Defibrillator)  

                          CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)  

                          First Aid  

  • The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) hosts a Learning Center which offers a broad range of online courses.  One of them is a free (as of May 2016) course titled “Concussion in Sports”.   

                                        Thanks for helping to keep our athletes safe!
