Did you know that up to 15% of athletes have asthma nationally? That's about one or two players on an average team.

The Winning With Asthma program will teach you more about asthma and how to help athletes manage it.

What is Winning with Asthma

www.WinningWithAsthma.org

An online 30-minute educational program for coaches, PE teachers and referees. The program teaches:

  • proper asthma medication
  • ways to prevent exercise-induced asthma
  • steps to take when athletes are experiencing asthma attacks
  • asthma triggers, what they are and what can be done to avoid them
  • guidelines specific for cold-weather sports

Those who complete the program receive a coach's clipboard with "What to do during an asthma attack" printed on the back, a protocol for emergencies, and a booklet with additional resources.
