In dealing with injuries, the coach must at least look competent and in control of the situation. The coach must remain calm so that the injured player and teammates are not unduly upset. In addition, the coach must:
1. Not diagnose an injury.
2. Do not touch the injury, but ask the player to move the affected area.
3. Seek professional help for all but minor injuries.
4. Put the child's welfare ahead of the team's need.
