Objectives: To establish the extent of first aid qualifications and knowledge amongst coaches and officials working in five non-elite youth sports in England. Materials & Methods: Questionnaires were administered to 1065 youth sports clubs across England. Data on first aider's qualifications and knowledge was requested in addition to information on medical record keeping and first aid equipment. Results: 80% of respondents held an up to date first aid certificate, however only 57% and 41% respectively answered the "collapsed player" and "choking player" scenario correctly. A lack of confidence amongst first aiders to manage commonly occurring incidents such as shoulder dislocations, epileptic attacks and diabetic attacks was also highlighted. Conclusion: First aid training providers should look at their courses and consider simplifying the content and altering the teaching methods in order to improve their student's skill levels and retention.
