Club Simpson Elite Health Protocol
This health protocol has been developed specifically with you, and all Club athletes in mind, for the health, safety and protection of all of you in the program.
This is a protocol that you are highly encouraged to follow throughout your athletic career in order to give you the best possible chance of staying healthy.
As a member of Club Simpson Elite, you will be following every item in this health protocol.
Now let’s get started…
There are two main sections to the Health Protocol: The Skin Protocol, and Physical Health Guidelines. Be sure to read each section and print it out if necessary.
Skin disease is the #1 reason for downtime in the sport of wrestling, and is still the biggest health issue facing our sport. With the emergence of MRSA, and presence of skin diseases such as Ringworm, Impetigo, Staff, and Herpes, it is imperative that we take preventive measures to avoid these things. The following represents our protocol to keep you safe and healthy.
Each athlete will submit to a thorough skin exam every day prior to practice. If you are aware of any potential skin disorders that you have, anywhere on your body, it is your duty and responsibility to inform me during the skin check process, for the safety and well being of yourself as well as the other Summit athletes. Every potential skin disorder will be checked.
A skin protection foam shall be used by each athlete prior to every practice. Kenshield will be on the table when you come in. Every athlete is responsible for applying skin foam prior to practice. This skin foam provides a protective film on the skin to help ward off skin issues.
When entering the wrestling room, athletes will step on the Sole Mat, then wipe their feet on the dry mat, to clean their shoes. At No Time will ANY street shoes be permitted on the mats
At the conclusion of practice, all athletes will shower at the Attack System Facility prior to leaving the facility – regardless how far away they live. Showering immediately after a workout is the #1 way to prevent skin disease. This protects you, as well as the athletes you are training with. I know you wouldn’t want to put them at risk by not showering. Extra towels are available for any athletes who forget to bring their own.
Here’s a great article from Kennedy Industries, the company that manufactures Kenshield, on hygiene: http://www.kennedyindustries.com/index.php?route=information/information&information_id=9
The mats in our facility are cleaned and mopped with a powerful disinfectant every day before your practice. The mop pads are only used once before being washed.
Physical Health Guidelines
Here are some simple guidelines that will help you stay healthy:
Wash hands regularly and always prior to eating
Always shower with a clean towel
Eat regular meals (at least 3 per day) to keep your metabolism steady
Get plenty of sleep. At least 8 hours a night if possible.
*Note: Club Simpson protocol is more lenient. Read Club Simpson Protocol here
