Default First Aid Kit?

I am coaching soccer and I need a good quality first aid kit for sports.

I have found some but, they come with a bunch of extra junk in them like leather work gloves and goggles.

Help me out with some sites or places (Brick and mortar) to go look at.

So far of all the places This one looks the best to me.

Tango,

I have always been under the impression that if you want something done right, do it yourself. IMO, First Aid kits that you buy at stores often just jumble together a few band-aids, some gauze, tape, tylenol, latex gloves, and call it a day.

I personally have a few kits I've put together from stuff at Walgreens (or other pharmacies) that I find to be superior to pre-made kits because they suit my needs. I keep one in my car, one smaller one in my gun bag, one for camping/hiking. If you build yours, you will be able to customize it to your specific needs.

YMMV

That kit looks good, I'd add some Ace Bandages to retain the reusable ice packs, once applied. Other than that, it seems to have everything! Any injury you are unable to treat is going to be addressed by the ER anyway!!

I also like the looks of this one. Slightly cheaper and has ace wraps in it I believe.

I think the idea of assembling your own may be the way to go. Most injuries in soccer are sprains and scrapes, maybe a bloody nose. So a pre-packaged kit will have stuff you wont need and lack stuff you do.

I think a good coaches kit would have,
ice packs
ace bandages
anti bacterial gel
gauze pad squares, roll
athletic tape
box of band aids

I'm sure there's lots of stuff you could throw in but I doubt it would ever be needed.

Default First Aid Kit

1) Large bottle of whiskey in case of snake bite.
2) Small snake ( just in case you can't find one when needed)

Hell, either one of them bags would be proficient, but as mentioned by dog above, the injuries you will see most will be sprains and strains, with a few scraps and injuries due to kicks to the shin or falling. Running head on into one another happens at times as well.

Lots of extra instant ice packs, freeze spray, ace bandages and elastic wrap curlex, tape and maybe some Tylenol or comparable anti-inflammatory.

Don't forget the Valium for the parental units and the starter's pistol for the fakers.

Been training kids football for 10 years now. I think the above just about covers it. One point though always check for ahsma sufferers and have their inhalers close to hand.
