Fast Facts

A concussion is a brain injury and all are serious.
Most concussions occur without loss of consciousness. Recognition and proper response to concussions when they first occur can help prevent further injury or even death.  The Lincoln Park PAL requires  all coaches to complete a free online course to help better recognize and understand concussions.  The course can be taken at www.cdc.gov/concussion

 

Injuries  

Coaches - Any time someone on your team is injured, an injury form needs to be filled out and submitted to the program head.  You can click here for a copy of the new form.
 
Parents - Anytime your child is injured playing a PAL sport that requires a visit to the doctor or hospital, we need to be aware of it.  The coach should be completing an injury report form that we keep on file.  If you are not sure if a form has been completed, please send an email to the PAL president at president@lppal.org
  

Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. Clinic - The Lincoln Park PAL requires all coaches attend the Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y (Sports Awareness for Educating Today's Youth) clinic.  In accordance with the stipulations in the Little League Law, the Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. Clinic:
  • helps coaches minimize the risk of injury to young athletes
  • provides information about fundamental coaching concepts which enhances volunteer coaches' effectiveness
  • protects volunteer coaches from civil lawsuits
  • Since 2009, the Lincoln Park PAL has been conducting Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. classes and over 350 of our volunteeccoaches have completed the course
We hold classes periodically during the year at the PAL and coaches are also able to take the class at other locations throughout the year.  For a list of open classes held in NJ, click here



Give, Without Giving - 
Huh?  How would you like to donate to the PAL without a penny coming out of your pocket?  If you have a checking or savings account at Boiling Springs Bank, the PAL can make money through your participation in the Community Alliance Program.  This program is completely anonymous (we don't know who the participants are or their balances) and the money comes from the bank, not your account.  For more information on the program, click here.  To enroll in the program, next time you are at the bank let them know, or complete this form and drop off at the bank.  If you are looking to open a new checking or savings account, this is a GREAT reason to select Boiling Springs and a GREAT opportunity to help support the PAL programs.
