Now that we are attempting to return to sports, it's time to make sure our ducks are in a row. Every year I have issues finding first aid kids that has everything I feel I need in it with out costing an arm and a leg. Here are my must haves:

  • Disposable gloves

  • Gauze roll

  • Gauze pads

  • Medical tape

  • Elastic bandage roll (Ace bandage)

  • Band-aids of various shapes and sizes

  • Antiseptic wipes (alcohol pads)

  • Antibiotic ointment

  • Hydrocortisone ointment

  • Finger splints

  • moleskin

  • tweezers

  • small scissors

  • safety pins

  • Instant cold packs

  • Ziploc bags

  • Tylenol/Ibuprofen

  • Benedryl

  • bug spray

  • sunscreen

Ice packs, ice packs, ice packs. Buy extra. You can never have to many, and most med kits don't have them in there. And do not forget the Ace bandage roll to strap that puppy on the injury. There is nothing worse that a kid on the sideline and a parent running around to find ice and a bag to put it in.

I prefer to grab a ready made kit when I can. Any of these are great!

I think this year I will grab the Lifeline Team first aid kit because I like that it comes in a bag so I can add extra items in.

Also, this is a great time to ask the parents on the team if they can bring any of these items, or ask local businesses for samples of instead of a monetary sponsorship. For example: Dr offices often have sunscreen samples or something else you could use. You never know who is wanting to help your team until you ask!
