Crumley Roberts To Offer Two Sports Safety Clinics in Triad Area on Tuesday
GREENSBORO, N.C., August 24, 2012– As part of the Crumley Roberts Safety Zone, the personal injury law firm will hold two Sports Safety Clinics for over 70 children on Tuesday, August 28th, to continue efforts to spread awareness about youth safety in athletics. The first safety clinic will take place at the B’Nai Shalom Day School in Greensboro, and will run from 2:30-3:30 pm inside the school’s gym. The High Point Friends School will host the later clinic from 6-7 pm. Both sports safety clinics will target youths ages 10-14.
With the upsurge of concussions and heat-related deaths that youth athletics has seen, Crumley Roberts has aimed to create ways to educate youths about preventing injury and death. To raise awareness, the safety-oriented firm has organized sports safety clinics, offering free presentations and information sessions based on the SAFE KIDS USA Curriculum to schools and community sports teams alike.
The safety clinics are presented by Jason Knight, Community Involvement Specialist, covering topics ranging from the importance of hydration and recognizing and treating head and eye injuries to dealing with extreme temperatures in outdoor sports. These interactive presentations last between 20 and 25 minutes, and are tailored to provide helpful information on preventing illnesses and injuries that go beyond the typical sprains, cuts, and bruises. Students who attend will receive a Sports Safety Certificate of Completion.
“We are trying to prevent as many accidents as possible this season,” said Chris Roberts, Crumley Roberts’ president. “We feel that these Sports Safety Clinics are not only a fun, unique way to promote safety, but also an appealing program for parents, coaches, and the local community to learn from as well.”
Crumley Roberts Sports Safety Clinics are part of the firm’s SafetyZone Initiative. The Crumley Roberts SafetyZone promotes adult and youth injury prevention through bike safety events, water safety presentations, child car safety checks, and sports safety clinics.
