Concussions in sports are a serious issue but as a coach or parent you can help keep your players and children safe and prevent serious or long term injury from concussion. The first steps are recognizing the signs and symptoms of concussion. The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) has a free online course sponsored by the CDC called "Concussion in sport" which is the standard and guideline for all school coaches. We are encouraging all coaches and parents in our recreational programs to please take this free course or at least look at the information to help keep all of our athletes safe. The link is NFHSLearn.com and is free to all.
If you are interested in coaching a team, please fill out the information under "Coaches Click Here", this is a questionnaire that requires a background check.
As a minimum, the NCAA and the National Severe Storms laboratory (NSSL), strongly recommend that all individuals leave the athletic sites and reach a safe location by the flash-to-bang count of 30 seconds (6 miles). However, lightning can strike as far as 10 miles and it does not have to rain for lightning to strike.
