Hazards and risks associated with sports participation???
Unit 10: Injury and the Sports Performer

Participating in any sporting activity carries an element of risk and there are many potential hazards
People factors
Environmental factors
Equipment factors
Environmental Factors
Often uncontrollable
Important to make judgements on potential hazards prior to starting an activity - Use weather forecasts
Weather can cause sports fields to become dangerous to play on - Icy or waterlogged
Hot conditions - dehydration, heat exhaustion
Unsure of surroundings - walking in mountains
Extreme wet and cold - hypothermia
Personal factors
Not warming up or cooling down correctly - this could lead to muscle strains
An opponent playing recklessly - High tackle in rugby could cause a neck injury
Playing under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Wearing jewellery
Chewing gum
Using incorrect techniques to lift weights
Over training
Lack of Experience
Not being able to work as a team
Equipment Factors
Many sports require special equipment
Protective equipment
Using gym equipment without knowing how to use it
Equipment not being set up correctly - harnesses, climbing ropes
Not having the correct clothing for the activity
Scenario - The local sports club where you coach (insert sport) take health and safety very seriously. They have a good safety record and want to keep it that way.

All new members receive information on the club, such as training times, annual costs, equipment requirements etc. but also information on injury and health & safety.

It has been decided that this information on injury and health & safety is outdated and needs sorting out quickly! And guess what…you have been handed with this task as the head coach has decided you will be the ideal person to produce this material. So what you need to do to is…

Task 1

Explain three different risks or hazards that relate to each topic of people, equipment and environment respectively (2A.P1)
Risks and Hazards in Sport (P1)
Possible ways to present the task

Possible methods of presentation could include;

 Fact Sheets
 A hand-out
 Or a more formal method such as a written report

No Warm up

If a warm up and cool down are not completed there is an increased risk of a performer sustaining an injury. It should include 3 phases; mobility, stretching and a pulse raiser. Within the cool down stretches are used to stop a build up of lactic acid in the muscles to prevent cramping. All sports require a warm up and cool down, especially high intensity sports such as hockey, netball and boxing.

In netball if a wing attack was about to change pace and sprint to receive a pass and they had not done a full warm up, they may find their hamstring muscles would be tight. This could cause a strained or torn muscle which could have been prevented and may lead to long term absence from their sport.
Learning aim A – Understand risks and hazards associated with sports performance

Oh Dear!

It may be Friday, but I expected more of you than what you have provided me with so far!

Let's start the enquiry with a few questions?

Why have you chosen Btec Sport?

What is a BTEC worth?

What do i expect of you and the work you submit?

In many cases the work contains the following issues:

Lack of detail
Poor Understanding
Little or no quality.
No evidence of Point / Evidence / Explain
Messy layout and use of images
No link to the theme / scenario outlined in the task brief.


The evidence you provide in your work must use the following rule:
POINT (Identify words / headings) Grade "D"
EVIDENCE (Describe the word/s) Grade "C"
EXPLAIN (Link to specific sporting examples) Grade "B"

See the example that you were provide with last week on the next slide!

How will you address the issues raised?

Read the sceanrio and task carefully and refer to it regularly as you produce your work.
Use the Prezi as a guide, dont flick through it, but read it!
Design your leaflet / Handout theme first, assign areas for each heading and ensure that the images used are appropriate and linked to the theme, REMEMBER IT IS FOR USE AT YOUR CLUB!
