Rush Soccer is excited to announce the newly formed partnership with the American Red Cross. Safety is a core value of Rush Soccer and no organization is as recognized with safety and the well being of people, as the Red Cross. Coaches, Players and Parents will be able to access the Red Cross First Aid Mobile App, giving expert advice and step by step instructions on how to administer first aid. Member Coaches will also have discounted access to First Aid for Coaches, an online course offered by the American Red Cross which focuses on topics such as: Checking an unconscious athlete, Asthma, Sudden Illness, Heat Related Illness, Wounds, and Injuries to the head, neck and spine.
“The American Red Cross partnership is incredibly meaningful to the Rush,” stated Rush Soccer President and CEO Tim Schulz. “Their history in reaching out to people is second to none. Their care and prevention program will be shared with our membership and staff. Here at Rush, we are elated to have such a world renowned company willing to work with us!”
“We are extremely excited to work with RUSH Soccer, “ said Debbie Seagle, Sales Director for the American Red Cross. “Our First Aid, Health and Safety for Coaches online course is a perfect fit. RUSH members will learn how to prevent and respond to athletic injuries and illnesses that commonly occur on the playing field. We encourage all coaches, trainers and parents to become certified in CPR as well.”
