HIGH POINT HIGH SCHOOL
A letter from the sponsor of this course
Here at High Point Regional High School, we take sports safety seriously and believe it begins with education. The coaching staff here is required to complete training in concussions, heat illness, and cardiac care annually. Coaches are often the first individuals to reach an injured athlete on the playing surface if an Athletic Trainer or other medical professional is not immediately available, so it is important for them to recognize what is going on and what actions to take.
Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in young athletes. CardiacWise is a free online educational program designed to educate coaches, parents, athletes on the prevention of sudden cardiac arrest in athletes. This course is approximately 15 minutes in length. Individuals who successfully complete this course will receive a certificate of completion.
HeatWise is an online program designed to educate coaches and others involved in sports and physical activity on the prevention and management of exertional heat illness. This course is approximately 20 minutes in length. Individuals who successfully complete the course will receive a certificate of completion. This course is a must for coaches of all levels!
