Accidents and Injuries
Badminton is a non contact sport and injuries are rare. Unfortunately, accidents do happen and the following procedures detail how we will respond to any minor or major injury that could occur at an EBA session.
If your child has any existing injuries make sure you tell coaches
The injury is assessed by a staff member and first aid will be given if required
An accident form is completed by a member of the coaching team
Your child is observed and monitored for the rest of the session
On collection of your child, you will be given information about the injury and will be emailed a copy of the accident form
An Accident Form will only be completed if first aid has been administered, if your child is particularly distressed, or if there is a visible mark/bruise on your child.
The injury will be assessed by a staff member, and first aid will be given
The lead coach will decide if hospital treatment is needed
You will be contacted immediately
If we cannot contact you within an appropriate length of time, the lead coach will accompany the child to the hospital or an ambulance will be called.
An accident form will be completed on the day and will be read and signed by the parent
At every EBA session, at least one coach or sport centre staff member is first aid trained. When an accident occurs, it is the responsibility of the first aider to determine how an injury should be dealt with.
