We have a summer in Storrs for you!
UConn Pre-College Summer Sports Medicine course provides high school students the opportunity to learn how to prevent, recognize, and treat sports related injuries at a nationally ranked public university campus.
How will you make a difference?
Offered for the first time ever during Sessions 4, our Sports Medicine course, led by the Korey Stringer Institute at the University of Connecticut, is targeted towards future leaders in the high school setting. The session features a curriculum of evidence-based prevention, recognition, and treatment of the Nation’s leading emergency issues in sports, military, and occupational settings. Each session includes interactive presentations disseminated by the experienced staff of the Korey Stringer Institute, as well as, hands on learning labs simulating the emergency treatment of life threatening aliments.
A broad range of emergent topics will be covered during the course, including:
- Cardiovascular events
- Exertional heat illnesses
- Traumatic injuries
- And other significant contributors to sudden death
Despite recent and proposed rule and policy changes at all levels of activity (i.e., NFL, USA Youth Soccer, NCAA, etc.), including the now punishable act of head-to-head contact during tackling in football and the removal of heading in youth soccer, sudden death due to the above conditions can still be an inherent aspect of sport and physical activity. Participants can expect to learn imperative knowledge in the understanding of today’s leading causes of death in sport and physical activity, including essential firsthand skills in the prevention, recognition, and treatment of these emergent injuries and illnesses.
