Health & Safety

The health and safety of our players is of the utmost importance to the Colonial Soccer Club.  Raising awareness of the prevention and proper treatment of sports injuries is the start to creating a safer environment for our children.

The Board encourages all parents, legal guardians, players and coaches to read the information in the following sections to educate themselves and better understand issues on: 1) Sports Injuries, 2) Concussions/Head Injuries, 3) Sudden Cardiac Arrest/Fainting, 4) Hydration/Heat Illness, 5) Goal Safety/Anchoring and 6) Thunder and Lightning/Weather.

It is important for athletes, parents, legal guardians and coaches to openly and frequently communicate health issues with each other. In many cases, there will be a need to obtain treatment from a licensed medical professional to resolve injuries before returning to sports related activities.

The Board is providing this health & safety information to our club members in the interest of improving player safety. The material is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.
