ESTA Safety Management

General Safety Guidelines for soccer activities

When a person is involved in any athletic activity, an injury can occur, especially in a contact sports. One should be aware that the information presented in these rules and procedures is to inform the athlete of proper techniques or the inherent dangers involved with this particular activity. Not all potential injury possibilities in soccer are listed, but athletes should be aware that fundamentals, coaching and proper fitting equipment are important to the Safety and the enjoyment of the sport.

 If an injury occurs, an athlete should contact his/her coach immediately. Additionally, it is essential for proper warm-up exercises prior to any strenuous activity.

The following guidelines should be followed when engaging in the sport of soccer.

 1. Be aware of your surroundings; familiarize yourself with field conditions which may be potentially dangerous such as holes, sprinkler heads, etc.

2. Travel to/from off-campus facilities for practice/contests should take place in school approved transportation vehicles only, unless a Parent/Guardian Driver Approval form  is on file.

3. Shin guards should always be worn.

4. Studs on footwear must not violate FIFA or WIAA rules.

5. Rings, earrings, and other jewelry pose a potential danger and should not be worn.

6. It is a violation of soccer rules and a potential danger to commit the following violations:

    Kicking or attempting to kick an opponent.

    Tripping an opponent.

    Jumping at an opponent.

    Charging an opponent from behind.

    Charging violently at an opponent.

    Striking or attempting to strike an opponent.

    Holding an opponent.

    Pushing an opponent.

    Playing in a manner considered by the referee to be dangerous, such as kicking at a shoulder-high ball when an opponent is trying to head it.

    Perform only those skills and techniques as instructed and/or supervised by your coach.

    All athletes will read printed literature regarding safety procedures as provided by the coach.

 
Emergency Procedures

Call EMERGENCY SERVICES (911)

Tell operator who you are. (Student athletic trainer, etc.)

Tell them where you are. (Location)

Tell them what your situation is. (Unresponsive victim, lack of pulse, breathing circulation or consciousness.)

Perform appropriate first aid and/or CPR

After arrival of ambulance, let EMTs work.

  • Find out which hospital ambulance is going to.
  • Inform student/athlete's coach.

        

Lightning procedures


 1. If lightning or thunder can be heard or seen by anyone (all personnel), outside athletic activities should be stopped and all personnel should seek shelter immediately. Lightning can strike 20 miles ahead of the parent cloud, so if you can hear thunder or see lightning you are in striking distance.

2. Seeking shelter does not include being under a tree, in a metal-framed structure (bleachers), dugouts or in a golf cart. Stay away from tall objects and water, seeking shelter inside a concrete structure is safe. In the absence of a sturdy, frequently inhabited building, any vehicle with a hard metal roof (neither a convertible, nor a golf cart) with the windows shut provides a measure of safety. The hard metal frame and roof, not the rubber tires, are what protects occupants by dissipating lightning current around the vehicle and not through the occupants. It is important not to touch the metal framework of the vehicles. Some athletics events rent school buses as safer shelters to place around open courses or fields.

 

1.      Feeling your hair stand on end or skin tingle is a forewarning that lightning or thunder is present. Immediately, assume the following position: assume a crouched position, place your arms on your legs, your hands over your ears, and lower your head. Do not lie flat. Once the sensation has passed, seek shelter immediately.

2.      Once thunder is heard or lightning is spotted, the information should be communicated to all other outside practice areas to ensure a complete evacuation.

3.      A person who has been struck by lightning does not carry an electrical charge. Therefore, rescue breathing or CPR is safe to initiate for the first aid personnel.

4.      In the event that either lightning or thunder should occur, allow thirty minutes to pass after the last sound of thunder and/or lightning strike prior to resuming any athletic activity.

         It is the coach's responsibility to have the latest up to date information concerning current weather conditions

       For safety reasons it is strongly recommended:

 When the temperature drops to 40degrees Fahrenheit or below: The athletic director, coach, and a member of athletic training staff should confer to discuss the elements of cold weather that could factor into creating unsafe conditions for participation.

    If the temperature with or without the wind chill is 10 degrees or below a practice or contests should not be played. This information is readily available on several weather internet sites. Weather.com or accuweather.com

          ** Guidelines are based on lightning safety protocols section Id of the NCAA sports medicine handbook.

 

Each coach has been interviewed, evaluated and completed a background check in order to participate ESTA administration and coaching team.

 

Safety and security is our No 1 priority.

   Safety and security highlights:

1. Health

2. Adequate safety equipment

3. Training criteria

4. Soccer trip criteria

5. Soccer training  criteria

 

Proper Care of your Equipment


Air-out all equipment after every use (practice and games).

Do not leave any items packed after road trips.

Do not leave wet shirts, under garments, or towels in lockers or bags. Always allow for these items to be dried or attach to laundry loop for cleaning.

After any event or practice, make sure cloth/practice gear gets washed.

Use Athletic Clean spray once or twice per week, or as needed, to minimize the chances of contracting infectious diseases. Do not soak equipment when spraying, but spray evenly across the surfaces that

come in contact with skin. Do not spray directly onto open wounds. Still report any wounds to the medical staff. Athletic spray is to be used as a cleaning product, not a treatment product.
