Where would be the best place to get a Rugby First Aid Kit?( with the stuff needed for Rugby first response)

Ask a question and have it answered by Coaches from around the world and IRB Educators.

Hello, Sanjay.

In England we generally get our first aid kits via Rugby kit stockists. I'm not too sure how common Rugby stockists are in the US, but I would suggest that you contact your state union to find out where you can obtain from.

Hope this helps.

Thanks much, Dennis,I don't think that we have many if any stockists here in US but i will definitly go the state union or the local Rugby Board route.

if you check the IRB RugbyReady site, it has a list of what you need, maybe you could stock from the local pharmacy

Even better, I shall try that. Thanks.

Hi Sanjay Try All Sport Medical in UK if you want guidance or to buy

Thanks Phillip, this is helpfull.

Hi Sanjay, As an ex-paramedic I made up my own for our team. The neccessities are quite simple; plasters, ice packs and heat packs, some non-allergenic dressings, a variety of neck braces if funds allow, rolls of sticky tape such as zinc oxide tape for sprained little fingers etc. ( although this should be taken off after the game and the injury checked by a doctor if unsure) some vaseline for bruised heads (reduces friction in the scrum) a bucket of water, a sponge, a blanket or two in winter, a stretcher if possible, safety pins, scissors. Hope this helps.

Thanks. You bet, every bit helps.
