In this hour I treated a client who plays for the ladies British Universities and Collages Sport (BUCs) hockey team. They requested a pre-event massage and Muscular Energy Techniques (METs) on the hamstrings, in order to prepare themselves for the game on Wednesday. The aim of the session was to decrease muscle tightness and increase flexibility of the hamstrings.
This was the first two-hour training session I attended with the British Universities and Collages Sport(BUCs) basketball team, as there first aider.
My role within the first and second team BUCs basketball game, was to be the first aider. Therefore, if an incidence did occur I was able to apply the appropriate knowledge when called on as the first responder to injures.
My main role within the session was to apply treatment (pre-training) to the players that had any underlying pathologies, as well as acting as the first aider while training was in progress.
This week I was the first aider for both the women’s volleyball and hockey team. The main incident that occurred was just after half time in the hockey match; a player from the opposing team was knocked unconscious as they received a ball to the face.

Me and another sports therapist provided post-match treatment to the BUCs hockey players, if they requested it. The majority of treatments consisted of soft tissue massage (STM) and METs (Muscular Energy Techniques).
