ACHA Medical Coverage Survey
Dan Morris, Markéta Schüblová
Thanks to all who participated in this survey
and made it possible.
Special thanks to Brian Moran for helping with the survey distribution.
The purpose of this survey was to investigate the medical coverage provided to student-athletes competing in ACHA.
Other: player, rink staff, parents, EMT/EMS, team managers
11 out of 24 coaches providing first aid had no certification
Decision about medical coverage of student-athlete participation should be based on the potential for serious or catastrophic injury, not on gender, sport profile or level of competition. Ice hockey is classified as a sport with increased risk (based on combined injury risk and catastrophic index) where certified athletic trainer should be at all practices. Unfortunately, based on the data collected in this study many universities and colleges are lacking in providing appropriate medical coverage to student athletes competing on club ice hockey teams in ACHA.
