WHY do we need qualified first aiders and/or trainers?

Sports trainers and first aiders have been part of Australian Football since the origins of the game. They are part of the fabric of every club and play a key role in player preparation and safety at all levels.

The AFL expects that football matches at all levels will be played in good quality environments and the safety of participants is paramount. There is a major focus with risk management particularly focused toward the prevention of, and prompt attention to injuries in Australian Football.

To ensure best outcomes, it is essential that adequate and timely first aid is provided.

In previously published recommendations the AFL has stated that:

  • A qualified first aider is present where participants are under 16 years

  • A qualified sports trainer is present where participants are 16 years and older.

What is expected of you in the role?

As first aid providers the most important thing to remember is that we are trained to provide help to someone who is injured or ill, and to keep them safe until they are well enough to return to the field or can get more advanced medical treatment and intervention (i.e.: medic, transfer to hospital, GP visit or other health professional referral). Please ensure that you do not operate outside of your scope of practice and the referral process is undertaken if you are ever unsure. It is better to be safe and overcautious than sorry.




MJFC will provide the training.

MJFC will provide the fully stocked first aid kits for use at training and in the game situation

The training coordinator, the committee, coaches and team managers are all there to provide support to the kids and to you as our volunteers.
