Safety Guide for Volunteer Coaches

Summer … a time to be outside, active, and free! Many children play summer sports, including young kids in recreation leagues. Many of these recreation league coaches are volunteers, often a parent of one of the athletes. Usually, these parents have some knowledge of the sport, but not of coaching specifically. Sometimes, there is very little (if any) training involved. West Bend put together an article of safety considerations (including a checklist) to think about. Consider sharing with your family’s sports league as a starting point for discussion and training.

Topics covered include:

  • Weather
  • Equipment Inspection
  • First Aid
  • Abuse Allegations
  • Appropriate Interactions
  • A Safety Checklist (to reference before each practice/game)
