Game Officials Education Program
Seminars from the Sports Medicine Center of Thibodaux Regional
When it comes to sports, some rules are put in place to keep the game competitive
and others are there to help keep players safe. It is up to game officials
(referees, umpires, etc.) to enforce these rules and ensure that players
are respecting each other’s' well-being as they compete. At
the Sports Medicine Center of Thibodaux Regional, we provide education
programs for these officials to help them uphold these responsibilities
on the field and help prevent avoidable injuries.
A major part of our education effort focuses on the individuals in stripes—referees.
Since they are on the field, or court, or diamond with the athletes at
all times, we feel it is necessary for the game officials to be aware
of certain symptoms of severe injuries. We work with area officials to
provide education on injuries such as concussion, heat illness, acute
cardiomyopathy, and other life-threatening situations.
