We have some very wet and wild weather predicted for our first weekend of games! Make sure you plan ahead, bring a trash-bag to keep your items dry and just expect to get a little damp this week. You may be slipping and sliding on the fields; work on warming up your muscles this week and get into a good stretching routine. Make sure you get to the fields early to meet with and warm up with your team!
Remember to bring any inhalers or allergy medication if needed.
We'll have a first aid tote with ice packs, finger splints, band-aids, and other various first aid supplies on the tar court next to the welcome tables. We'll also have first aid kits on each of the field carts along with NARCAN, which is to stay with the first aid kit.
Please go to your captains if you have an injury and utilize the tote supplies before utilizing the first aid kits on each field cart. If you do need to use the first aid kits on the carts, please use what is already open first! There will be an inventory sheet to track our medical supplies for the tote and kits - please remember to fill this out so we can re-stock supplies for the following week.
Free NARCAN/Drug Testing Kits:
As we mentioned at the meet your team party, we'll have free NARCAN and drug testing kits available at the fields. With the rainy forecast this weekend, we'll keep these supplies in storage. We'll share more information on the distribution/request process for these supplies in next week’s edition of the Rhody Huddle. Please contact our Director of Health and Safety - Theresa Waterbury - for more information: email@example.com.
Weekly Health Highlight: MOUTH GUARDS
You may notice that some players choose to wear mouth guards during practices and games. Although this is not a required piece of equipment, accidents happen, and some folks can take hard hits during game play. Wearing a mouth guard reduces the risk of trauma to your teeth and jaw and may reduce the risk of getting a concussion. Check out this Mouth Guard Info for more information and link to mouth guard for purchase on Amazon.
