CareMonkey making it easy to look after your members
With summer in full swing, Vicsport is well aware of the serious heat related injuries that often occur during practice and competitions. Participants who suffered from heatstroke can often faint, leaving coaches with limited information as to how to respond to the emergency. Furthermore, recovery needs to be well managed in order for participants to regain their health for the rest of the season. Vicsport's preferred supplier, CareMonkey, helps sporting clubs around Australia to manage participants’ medical and emergency details, so that coaches and administrators no longer have to do it manually. Glen Bertoli, Head Trainer at Waverley Oakleigh Panthers, uses the CareMonkey system to manage their players: “We have a number of players at our club with medical conditions, some more serious than others. Our coaches are now able to access their players’ up-to-date medical and emergency contact profiles via the CareMonkey system. It’s a huge boost to our risk management strategy and provides peace of mind to parents and club admins alike.” The CareMonkey system also allows trainers and coaches to log injuries on their mobile phones, making it easy to create a injury database across players, club, tournament and a sport as a whole. CareMonkey is currently offering clubs to sign up for free for the remainder of 2015.
