Yesterday, my oldest son broke his collar bone during his middle school athletics period.  His injury was not caught by the coaches because he was still able to move his arm right after the injury.  He returned to the drill line but then slowly lost movement in his arm and the pain overtook his adrenaline rush from the break.  Since the recent education budget cuts at KISD, he was sent to the nurse not to the athletic trainer which was laid off this season.

Since we all probably need a refresher course on what to do in case of injuries, I found this helpful PDF presentation.  I hope this helps  you too.  Coach’s Role in Injury Prevention and Treatment
