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 PAL is requiring 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
Facebook - The Lincoln Park P.A.L. is now on Facebook! Get all registration information, as well as notices and news from the LP PAL as it happens. Give us a like to add us to your timeline!
Why? Someone asked why we had to get the kids off of the field when there was only thunder. Please read the information below from NOAA concerning the danger of lightning. In addition, we are not permitted to re-enter the field for 30 minutes from the last thunder or lightning. This means everytime we see or hear it, the 30 minute clock restarts.
►All thunderstorms produce lightning and are dangerous. In an average year, lightning kills more people in the U.S. than either tornadoes or hurricanes.
►Lightning often strikes outside the area of heavy rain and may strike as far as 10 miles from any rainfall. Many deaths from lightning occur ahead of storms because people wait too long before seeking shelter, or after storms because people return outside too soon.
►If you hear thunder, you are in danger. Anytime thunder is heard, the thunderstorm is close enough to pose an immediate lightning threat to your location.
►Lightning leaves many victims with permanent disabilities. While only a small percentage of lightning strike victims die, many survivors must learn to live with very serious, lifelong disabilities.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Concussions In Sports - There has been much talk in the media lately about concussions. While there has been a reported increase in athletes suffering concussions, some of this may be attributed to a better understanding of concussions. New research now points out that minor head injuries may in fact be concussions. You do not need to lose consciousness to be diagnosed as suffering a concussion. Concussions can cause serious health issues later in life if athletes are permitted to return to sports before they are fully healed. It is important for coaches to recognize concussion symptoms and to provide proper care when they do occur. The PAL is requiring all coaches to complete a free online course to help better recognize and understand concussions. After you complete the class you can print off a certificate indicating you have completed the course. The course can be taken at www.cdc.gov/concussion
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.
