Most sport is generally safe to play in. However, sport remains an inherently physical activity and some risk of injury is unavoidable. It is essential to have a requisite first aid kit to hand. But you might now think what should an ‘adequate’ sports first aid kit contain? No matter what sport you’re playing it is always handy to carry a foam roller for aching muscles, Sports Strapping Tape for minor sprains and blister plasters. Pack some paracetamol, which can soothe the immediate pain of injuries while ibuprofen can reduce any swelling associated with a sprain.

Here is a list of some basic items you should hold to allow immediate ‘pitch-side’ treatment. The list is broken down into categories, based on the types of sports injury you need to be able to deal with:

Soft Tissue Injuries (Sprains, Strains and Bruises)

- Cold packs or ice

- Bandages

- Strapping tape

Wounds and Abrasions

- ‘Roll-type’ first aid dressings

- Dressing pads

- Bandages

- Medical tape

- Adhesive dressings

- Sterile saline

- Wipes

- Medical gloves

Eye Injuries

- Eyewash pods

- Eye pads

- Bandages

Medical Emergencies

- Face shield or pocket mask

- Splinting material

- Foil blankets or fabric blankets

Important Extras

- Scissors

- Triangular bandages

- Clinical waste bags

- Non-woven swabs

Optional Extras

- Safety pins

- Hand sanitizer

- Antiseptic creams

- Tissues

- Wound closures

We have tried to keep this list of must-have essentials. For instance, we have not covered other important medical items like stretchers and frac immobilizers that do not fit inside a first aid kit. Nor have we dealt with more’ thorny’ topics such as a concussion or sudden cardiac arrest.

Although, one copy of every item on this list would fill a small to medium-sized first aid box. You will need to think about what’s practical for you to carry and whether you’re responsible only for your own safety or for that of other people too.
