‘Be a Sports Safety Champion’ by Republic Polytechnic (RP)
(For All NROC Coaches)
Engaging in regular physical activity can reap numerous health benefits. Physical activity can enhance your emotional and psychological well-being by improving your self-esteem. Your body releases chemicals called endorphins when you exercise.
Endorphins are “feel-good” chemicals that uplift your mood and can even reduce feelings of stress, anxiety and depression. However, it is also important to exercise safely at all times to prevent injuries.
Through this course, the participants will share a common belief that every individual should have the opportunity to play sports in a safe environment and be free of injury:
- All accidents are preventable
- Everyone has a role and responsibility
- Zero accident is our collective goal
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Recognise the common sport injuries and factors leading to it
- Identify types of reactive and preventive measures
- Ability to implement preventive measures and reduce the occurrence of injuries
The course delivery involves various strands of experiential learning methodology such as facilitated discussions, problem-based learning, practical / hands-on, peer supported activities and documented observations for presentations.
Participants will be awarded the Certificate of Attendance by Republic Polytechnic upon meeting 75% of the attendance requirement.
