Below is a checklist that I highly recommend you and your staff review in an effort to prevent catastrophic injuries and/or accidents in your school and follow them in the event one of your student athletes is seriously injured while participating in an LHSAA interscholastic athletic event such as a practice session or a contest.

Please make copies and distribute to your coaching staff.

While this checklist is not all inclusive, it should provide you with some sound guidelines to follow should a situation of this nature develop at your school. We encourage all schools to keep this information on file.

Hopefully, you will never have to use these guidelines. However, should such an injury or situation occur at your school, this bulletin is designed to provide you with a checklist of things to consider when reacting to the catastrophic situation.
