Horrific Sporting Injuries

Skill and technique

Skill and technique relate to the efficiency with which we perform the required activities. Skilful players perform difficult movements with ease and precision. They display a high degree of temporal patterning (the smaller parts of the movement are executed in sequence), pacing (movements are precisely timed) and control. These features are acquired and developed through effort and practice.

 

Correct skill development is essential to prevent injury. The footballer who is unsure of correct tackling technique is at risk each time they make a tackle. The basketballer who is unable to rebound competently places his or her knees at risk of injury with each landing. Wrestlers who have inferior falling techniques risk injury each time they are thrown on the canvas. Most people appreciate the importance of skill acquisition to improved performance. It is equally important in the prevention of serious injury.

 

Physical fitness

A most important preventative action in enhancing the well-being of athletes is to ensure that the level of physical fitness required by the sport is attained before full competition begins. Physical fitness has a range of attributes and the quantity required of each depends on the type of sport or activity. Some sports such as rugby require superior cardiorespiratory fitness together with high levels of strength, power, speed, endurance and agility depending on the position played. Other sports such as gymnastics require less cardiorespiratory fitness but more flexibility, coordination and balance while being aware of body composition.

 

Lack of development of the appropriate level of fitness for a particular sport is a major contributing factor to injury. A level of physical fitness fitting to the sport ensures that energy supplies are adequate and body systems are able to meet the demands of what is required in the activity.

 

 

Choose three different sports. For each sport, investigate strategies used to enhance physical preparation aimed at injury prevention.

Warm up and Cool down

Warm up and Cool down | Sports Medicine PDHPE - preventative actions | Scoop.it

An appropriate warm up should prepare the body for physical activity. Warm up routines need to be specific to the nature of the sport. For example, a warm up for a game of touch needs to include running with changes of direction, forwards and backwards running and ball passing. A good warm up gradually prepares the body for the demands that will be faced during participation in the sport.

 

A cool down eases the body into recovery and reduces the severity of soreness. A cool down should not be as intense as a warm up.

 

Which type of stretching is most valid in the warm-up and the cool-down? How do you know when you have warmed - up?

Smartplay is Sports Medicine Australia's sports injury prevention program which helps communities play and stay safe.

 

Rules are modified for children for two main reasons. One reason is to make the game a little easier to participate in as there are less rules to slow down the game.

 

Another reason rules are modified is for the safety and wellbeing of the child.

 

Outline 6 modified rules for children and identify the advantages of each rule change.

The overall Australian health costs borne by the whole community through increased taxes and increased health insurance costs need to be reduced. Did you know that the current cost of sporting injuries in Australia is more than 1.2 billion dollars each year?

 

Stats on sporting injuries reveal:

- 1 Australian in every 17 is injured playing sport each year.

- Twice as many injuries occur in competition as in training

- between 30% and 50% of sports injuries could have been prevented.

Pre-screening tool

Before beginning a training program, it is essential that subjects at risk be pre-screened. Age, gender, health status and previous experience are important criteria in the screening process. For example, a person who wishes to begin a program at the age of 40 years and who has a history of active involvement in fun runs and other aerobic activities such as soccer will not have the same elements of risk as an older, obese, unfit person.

 

Print and complete the pre-screening tool. What indicates a high risk and low risk athlete?

 

Many of the conditions mentioned in the pre-screening tool, may not be relevant to you at this point in your life. Suggest those that may be of concern in 20 years time (for example, blood pressure). What could you do to prevent these conditions developing?

Smartplay is Sports Medicine Australia's sports injury prevention program which helps communities play and stay safe.

 

Sports policy and the sports environment are essential for the safety and wellbeing of athletes. Rules ensure fairness and order. Without fairness and order, players can be injured. Other preventative actions include matching opponents, using protective equipment and providing safe grounds, equipment and facilities.

 

The policies and rules of sports and activities assist the flow of play and help protect participants from injury. Governing sporting bodies will have policies for safe participation, e.g. heat and storm policies. Policies may also involve supervision requirements of young people to ensure safety and protective equipment

 

The two examples in your syllabus are HEAT rules and RUGBY UNION SCRUMS - investigate these and 2 other policies and guidelines which you think are important and provide a brief overview of all four.

A debate that has raged for years is the question of whether children should compete in age or weight categories, especially in contact sports. When my father went to school you competed in weight for school teams and ages for town teams - it was confusing. Then it shifted to purely aged competitions. The huge influx of Islander kids moving to Australia to play League and Union is making many people think that it needs to be shifted back..... There are quality arguments for both sides of this debate. Research and develop your own thoughts to evaluate whether weight or age is a better system in contact sports.
