Sports Safety. Accident Prevention and Injury Control in Physical Education, Athletics, and Recreation.
Yost, Charles Peter, Ed.
This anthology of articles concerned with injury in sports and safety procedures is divided into three parts. Part One is devoted to general discussions of safety and a guiding philosophy for accident prevention. Part Two develops articles on administration and supervision, including discussions of health examination, legal liability, facilities, equipment, and supplies. Part Three is broken down into nine sections in which individual sports and their safety problems are considered. The nine section headings are safety in team sports (baseball, basketball, soccer, others); safety in individual sports (archery, bowling, others); safety in dual sports (Fencing, judo, wrestling); safety in aquatic activities; safety in open water aquatic sports; safety in winter sports; safety in outing activities (fishing, camping, hunting and shooting); safety in dance and in children's movement (developmental and play activities). Included as appendixes are a suggested outline for a college course in sports safety and copies of questionnaires on sports safety sent out to athletic personnel. (JA)
