School Courses

A large portion of the participation in sport in Australia occurs at a junior level. Much of this involvement occurs through students who participate in a variety of after-school and inter-school activities. These students often carry this past their schooling, and go on to complete further sporting exploits or involvement outside of the school environment.

As such SASMA believes it is pivotal for school students to have a basic understanding of sports injury management and prevention, so that they can begin to understand and help manage their own safe involvement in sport and recreation.

The following courses are offered by SASMA for school students:

Basic Sports Nutrition

Our Sports Nutrition workshop focuses on developing the knowledge and understanding for students to be able to make healthy choices about food and nutrition in relation to physical performance.

This workshop will explore the impact that nutrition has on performance and will allow students to gain an understanding of the nutritional requirements necessary for different energy needs.

This workshop runs for a single lesson (approximately 40 Minutes).

Sideline Help Course

The Sideline Help Course provides students with the opportunity to consider and analyse issues related to sports injuries including the prevention, management and rehabilitation of injuries from a range of sporting scenarios.

Its primary objective is to ensure students acquire skills and confidence to be able to provide immediate sports specific injury assistance for themselves as a player, or others if in the capacity as a coach or first aider.

The course runs for a double lesson (approximately 1.5 hours) and is a good way to open up discussions on issues related to sports injuries with your class.
Schools often combine this course with a Basic Taping course to increase the students skill set.
