LVSF Launches Game-Saver CPR, AED Basics and Sports Safety Program for Student Athletes

On Friday August 30th, 2013 we visited with the Henderson All-Americans Youth Football Team at Sunset Park to hold our very first run of our Game-Saver CPR, AED Basics and Sports Safety Awareness for Student-Athletes Program.

During the hour long program we trained approximately 20 players ages 7 to 14 and 5 parents on recognizing when an emergency exists, scene safety, appropriate steps to take, Hands-Only CPR Skills and What an AED is and How it Works. After that we spoke to the parents and kids about the importance of Pre-Participation Exams and about the different types of sports injuries such as concussions, overuse injuries, MRSA and much more. We then stressed to the kids why speaking up when they have an injury is important and what can happen if they don't tell someone or continue to play when injured.

This was just the first of many more to come and we will continue to improve and grow the program as we continue to move forward.

If your team or league is interested in us coming out to train your organization (which is highly encouraged) please contact us TODAY! There is no charge for the program. For more information, please visit our Game-Saver Program section.

I enjoy doing these free physical events with LV Sportz Foundation. It makes me happy to know another 50 or so athletes were screened and the few that actually have an issue with their heart and didn't know are now getting treatment. (Medical Volunteer)
