Heat-Related Illness

Heat-Related Illness is one of the leading challenges faced by participants in youth sports.  This free online course from the Centers for Disease Control for coaches, teachers, parents, and high school athletes

The Centers for Disease Control’s Heat-Related Illness course shows how to recognize, prevent and treat heat related illness among athletes. Although most incidences reported in the media involve high school football players, athletes of various sports activities and ages can be susceptible.

The content in this course primarily concentrates on high school athletes, but it can be adapted to address athletes of all ages and activities, such as high school soccer players, little league players (ages 6-13) and college-level athletes.
