Being Well Versed in Health and Wellness is Fundamental to Good Coaching
USCA’s "Health and Wellness" section is about medical matters, diet and nutrition, lifestyle, mental health, balance, stress management, body maintenance, avoiding risky consumption (e.g., drugs & alcohol), and related topics as they pertain to coaching, athletic performance, safety, and sports injury.
Good coaches pay careful attention to their players’ overall health and wellness; they adhere to sound practices designed to ensure each player is medically and emotionally capable of engaging in the physical activities required by the sport and position. They also take proper safety precautions and educate themselves carefully about sport injuries and symptoms, and how to recognize, avoid, treat, and manage them.
Here USCA organizes and
presents essential knowledge and resources to help coaches understand pertinent
sports medicine principles and wisely manage these important issues on behalf of
their players and teams.
