The rule to follow is RICE. Rest, ice, compression and elevation. Ice it for 20 minutes every hour. Take a break so you do not freezer burn your skin and make sure you put a towel between your skin and the ice. Keep it elevated and do not walk on it tonight. If the swelling does not go down from the ice and wrap (make sure the wrap is not too tight)...then go to the doctor to make sure it is not just a simple sprain.

Go to the nurse/doctor. You need medical attention for something like that.

Explain to the teacher that you can not attend the practice and show her/him your ankle. Put some ice on your ankle and keep it up and rested.

if it is hot put ice on it put the ice in a wash cloth do not put the ice directly on skin and put the ice 10 min on and 10 min off. Tomorrow if still in pain have your Dr. order an ex-ray
