Sovicos Prioritizes Safety!

This post is also available in: Dutch

The Netherlands is a nation of sports enthusiasts, but sometimes things don’t go as planned. Every week, around 1,000 athletes find themselves in need of medical attention at the Emergency Department (ED), with several cases of heart-related issues during or shortly after physical activities.

In situations like these, knowledge of Sports First Aid (EHBSO) and CPR becomes crucial. Effective first aid contributes to recovery and, in severe cases, can even be a matter of life and death. A little preparation can make a significant difference. That’s why Sovicos is taking action.

Members Eagerly Engage

In lightning speed, ten members have already signed up for our Sports First Aid Course. This rapid response demonstrates how deeply we value safety. These ten members will be participating in the course to equip themselves with the skills to intervene when necessary. Of course, our hope is to never have to use these skills, but as the saying goes, prevention is better than cure, right?

Have Prior Experience?

If you’ve already completed a first aid course, kindly let us know at It’s always helpful to identify those who are capable of providing assistance during emergencies.

We’re overjoyed to roll out this initiative and witness the enthusiastic response from our members. Together, we’re committed to keeping Sovicos safe for all members.
