For: Parents, coaches, and administrators for youth sports team
About: This National Survey on Emergency Preparation for Youth Sports takes about 10 minutes to complete.
A large number of youth participate in sports as a form of socialization and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. With increased participation comes an increased risk of injury. Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death among youth athletes in the United States. Intervention using an emergency action plan, by trained individuals and expedient use of an AED greatly increases the survival rate of sudden cardiac arrest in youth athletes. Several rules and regulations, particularly in high schools, have been enacted over the past several years to help improve the emergency preparedness in secondary school sports organizations. However, it remains unknown whether similar improvements have been made in youth sports organizations.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the level of preparation, training of personnel, and availability of AEDs for responding to emergencies in youth athletes. It will only take approximately 10 minutes to complete the questionnaire. All responses will remain confidential and secure. This research has been approved by the Institutional Review Board at the University of Lynchburg.
We appreciate your time in taking the survey. We are hopeful that the results will help improve safety in youth sports in the future.
