Safety for Athletic Activities
Naval Safety Supervisor - Military manual on safety practices
Teammates need to communicate with each other to avoid collisions. Before the game, appoint the center fielder  to  call  off  teammates  for  outfield  fly  balls. Appoint the shortstop to do the same thing for infield fly balls. Make sure they make calls in a clear, loud voice. These precautions will keep players from running into each other and possibly resulting in a tragedy such as the one involving a highly skilled Navy technician. While going for a fly ball, this technician collided with another player; he never recovered from the impact and eventually  died. Basketball Many   basketball   injuries   result   from   people warming up improperly, wearing the wrong type of shoes,  and  playing  too  aggressively.  Taping  your  ankles or using ankle supports with high-top shoes reduces the severity of ankle injuries. Don’ t wear running shoes for playing basketball. Your high top shoes should have 1/2 inch at the toe for clearance on the sudden stops and pivots common to basketball. They should have nonslip soles and provide adequate ventilation. In early season workouts,  paint  the  soles  of  your  feet  with  benzoin  to lessen  your  chances  of  getting  blisters.  Wear  an  inner sock of light cotton underneath a wool or heavier-weight athletic  sock. Wear  pads  to  protect  your  knees  and  elbows  from bruises and floor burns. Wear a knee brace if you need knee support. Setting  up  basketball  courts  on  flight  and  hanger decks  provides  recreation  at  sea,  but  these  courts  can cause  serious  injuries.  Twisting  and  pivoting  on  a nonskid deck, as well as Falling, can result in a variety of injuries. Be careful when playing on this type of surface. Boxing All   participants,   including   boxers,   coaches, referees, and physicians in a Navy boxing competition must attend at least one precompetition meeting or clinic.  The  purpose  is  to  review  concepts  contained  in the Safety  Awareness  Manual  and  explain  procedures for  training  and  competition.  Other  required publications include:  Official Boxing Rules, Physician’s Ringside  Manual,  and the Introduction  to  Olympic Boxing  pamphlet.  You  can  order  copies  of  these publications  (at  a  nominal  charge)  from  the  following address: USA Boxing, Inc. 1750 East Bolder Street Colorado Springs, CO 80909-5776 Boxers  must  wear  a  mouthpiece,  U.S.A.  Amateur Boxing  Federation  approved  protective  headgear, gloves, and a groin protector during sparring and com- petition. All weight classes must wear 16-ounce gloves. The gloves will be either the thumbless type or thumb- attached type. Boxing gloves must be checked before use. They should be clean, be free of lumps, and have smooth surfaces. A boxer should be able to fasten them securely. Mouthpieces must be custom-made and individ- ually  fitted.  When  sparring  and  during  actual  matches, boxers  should  wear  protective  headgear.  Boxers  should wrap their hands to protect them while sparring, while working out on the heavy bags, and for all matches. Medical  officers  providing  support  must  be  familiar with and must meet the requirements of the  Physician’s Ringside Manual.  The professional qualifications of these medical officers should include current compe- tency  in  the  emergency  treatment  of  head  trauma, management of traumatic injury, certification in basic and advanced cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and experience in transporting unstable patients. For additional information on Navy boxing compe- tition, refer to enclosure (7) of BUPERSINST 1710.20. Football Football is one of the most hazardous of all team sports  because  of  the  continuous  heavy  body  contact. Only  trained,  well-conditioned  players  should  take  part in competitive football games. Players need not get hurt if  they  apply  various  safeguards. All players must wear full-weight football shoulder, hip, thigh, and knee pads as well as headgear when they expect body contact both in practice and in the actual game. This gear must be properly fitted. We recommend that anyone engaging in active sports wear a mouthpiece. The mouthpiece is a relatively inexpensive  piece  of  equipment  that  reduces  oral damage  considerably.  It  also  provides  the  cushion necessary to help prevent concussion from the shock of blows sustained by the head and chin. Helmets provide a method of holding the skull away from the shell on impact. A helmet should have at least a 1-inch clearance between the outer shell and the nylon or canvas webbing into which the head fits. The helmet should be lined with vinyl plastic, which is 15 times more shock absorbent than foam rubber. The player must be able to hear in a helmet. Discard old helmets. 11-10
