As much as we strive to stop them happening, accidents do happen. Wearing good protective equipment (quality gum shields and shin pads) will reduce the damage of impact with ball, stick, player or ground. Umpires will do their utmost to try and keep the game safe too, using the rules to protect players from dangerous balls and situations.
Captains are issued at the start of the season with first aid kits stocked with the essentials for pitchside care. It is also a good idea to ensure your captain has emergency contact details for you. It is the captain's duty to raise the accident using the form found in the Policies and Procedures section.
