What are the benefits of having a Sports Trainer at your event?

Sports organisers must consider the many risk factors associated with any event. Dedicated Sports Trainers can assist to minimise the risk of injury by providing appropriate pre-event advice and by rapidly treating any injuries that may occur. SASMA Sports Trainers can treat and refer athletes for appropriate further medical investigation if necessary. Our Sports Trainers can be easily identified in their distinctive uniform and can be stationed at various positions around the event for rapid response. In addition, staff at SASMA can assist with the planning and administration of the injury management plan for your event.

"I would just like to let you know how impressed I was in the way that the Sports Trainer conducted herself  and communicated with the students at the Girls Football Finals on Wednesday. It was a tough day with a continuous stream of injuries, finishing off with a concussion."
