How does AYSO handle the issue of blood safety?

Per AYSO guidelines, the following is required to occur if a player is injured and bleeding is present during practice or a game:

1. The player must be removed from the activity immediately and the nature of the bleeding stopped.

2. The wound must be covered/bandaged.

3. Any article of a players clothing containing blood must be removed or neutralized with a solution of hydrogen peroxide.
