There’s plenty of sunshine (and sunscreen) at this year’s Canton Cup!
The clear skies, hot sun and summer-like temps present a challenge that is continually addressed by the Sports Medicine staff. The athletes, referees and tournament workers are going through water and Gatorade like crazy and sunscreen provided at the medical tent is a welcome relief!

This young player was dropped off at the medical tent, leaking blood from the mouth/nose. Everyone pitched in to assist yet the following photos beg the question, “How many AT’s does it take to stop a bleed?” Actually, this player was cut badly inside the mouth from his braces.
Jilli, Dawn and Ryan work together.
Gloves, gauze and more gauze! This young man was a trooper and made it back into play.
This little guy came by the medical tent looking for some help. His father and sister came along too, although his father was a bit demanding (we’ve all met those types, right?!) and his sister was only interested in playing in the tent.
