Free First Responders Course on Thursday 3/13 in West Bridgewater
On Thursday, March 13th, at 6:30 pm, a group of Brockton hospital emergency room physicians will be at the Howard School cafeteria in West Bridgewater to offer an Athletic First Responder course for all WBYAA & SSSL volunteers at no cost to the participants. This one evening course will include instruction in sports related injury prevention, with an emphasis on concussion and head injury, sports safety, and bystander CPR and defibrillator (AED) use. This program was borne out of the desire of these physicians to markedly decrease the incidence of head injuries in youth sports, as well as, to educate volunteers to properly assess and prevent common sports related injuries in children. This is a special and unique program that we are very fortunate to have offered to us, and free of charge.
2014 Spring Pre-season Coaches Meetings Announced
Last year we brought back the pre-season coach meetings to allow us to speak directly with our volunteer coaches and help set expectation for the season. After very positive feedback from those that attended, we have made some improvements to this year’s meetings. This year will focus on these main subject areas: Sportsmanship, Game Management and Injuries, Changes to the Rules of Play, and Game/Team Administration. We encourage all coaches to attend one of these sessions.
As a token of our appreciation, there will be a raffle at the end of each session for those in attendance.
The meetings are set to take place according to the following schedule:
At St. Joseph’s Catholic Elementary School, 143 South Franklin Street, Holbrook
Saturday March 8 12:30p - 2:00pm, one session for all age group coaches
At South Shore Christian Academy, 45 Broad St, Weymouth
Wednesday March 19 7:00 - 8:15pm for u10 coaches only
Wednesday March 19 8:30 - 9:30pm for u12 and older coaches
