Safety

Message From the Safety Director to all DYF Parents:


Our coaches and their assistants take all precautions to assure the safety and well being of all their players. Every team has at least one member of their staff that has been trained and certified in First Aid and CPR, but as hard as they try the coaching staffs can only do so much. This is where you as parents can also help. With a few small precautions unnecessary injuries and illnesses can be prevented.

  • Make sure all your player’s equipment fits properly, cleats, pants, padding, etc. Improper fitted equipment can result in painful blisters or on field injuries.
  • Clothing, dress them properly in the warm and hot days as well as the much colder autumn days. Heat stroke and hypothermia can be very serious.
  • Make sure all their equipment and clothing is properly cleaned, dirty sweaty clothing and equipment can harbor bacteria which my result in staff infections if your child has any small abrasions.
  • Make sure they have water, and plenty of it, especially on the hot days of August and early September.
  • Monitor any cuts, abrasions and bruises very closely. Be sure to apply insect repellant as needed.
  • Most of all talk to your player, ask them questions about any and all injuries they may have even if they seem very minor.


Taking these small precautions can go a long way in having a healthy productive season for your player and his teammates.
