Injuries and sickness

If your child is ill or not keen to compete, PLEASE do not send them along to compete.

The Centre has a standard first aid kit available for treatment of athletes in the event of injury and a number of trained First Aiders. For any insurance claim to be valid, all injuries must be reported as soon as possible and recorded in the register held at the canteen for that purpose. LAACT and WCLAC partly sponsors participation in accredited first aid courses.
