What to do in the event of an Injury

Where an injury occurs during training or a game, please ensure the incident is recorded by the referees or venue manager. If the injury results in absence from a number of games then the player may need to apply for medical exemption to play in the season finals. 

In the event that the injury was not recorded at the time, then a statutory declaration from a witness to the event, may be requested. A medical certificate will also be required for exemption and insurance purposes.

A bleeding player must leave the court immediately and may not resume playing until the bleeding has stopped. Blood must be removed from the player and uniform before the player can resume playing. A blood kit, stored in the referee’s room, should be used on spilt blood on the floor, benches and equipment. Blood kit should only be used by the referees or referee supervisor. NOTE: Play cannot commence until any blood spills have been cleaned.

 

Each team is responsible for attending to their own injured player, coach and spectator. If an ambulance is required, either the player or team representative must accept responsibility for payment of ambulance fee.
