The COVID 19 pandemic presents a myriad of challenges to high school athletic and activity programs. To help address some of those challenges, the National Federation of State High School Associations has developed “COVID-19 for Coaches and Administrators.”
The NFHS Sports Medicine Advisory Committee developed “Guidance for Opening Up High School Athletics and Activities” to aide state associations during this unprecedented event. This course will present material from that document along with some other helpful information and materials to assist school administrators and coaches conduct workouts, practices and contests as safely as possible.
NFHS Network Offers Schools Two Free Production Units to Stream Events Through “High School Support Program”
Through its High School Support Program, the NFHS Network is offering up to two free Pixellot automated-production units for schools that lack production capabilities to stream events on the NFHS Network.
The offer of two Pixellot units – one for indoor events and the other for outdoor contests – has been extended to all 19,500 high schools in the 51 NFHS member state associations. The NFHS Network is a joint venture of the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), its member state associations and PlayOn! Sports.
In addition to receiving two free Pixellot production units, schools will receive a larger percentage of subscription revenue generated from their events, effective August 1, in an effort to offset revenue losses from reduced attendance.
The Idaho High School Activities Association is pleased to announce the 2019-2020 winners of the "Schools of Excellence" program, sponsored by the Idaho Army National Guard. This yearlong, voluntary program in which schools earn points based on their student-athletes’ performance in athletics, academics and sportsmanship is the top award for the IHSAA and its member schools. The top three schools in each classification with the best overall programs will be recognized at the IHSAA Annual Meeting, August 5th.
High school coaches know the importance of preparation. You spend hours developing practice and game plans. You work tirelessly to perfect performance all in an effort to help your students excel in their sport or activity and in life.
Every year high school students endure serious injuries and suffer life-threatening medical emergencies while participating in sports and activities. The causes are many and varied. Some may result from known medical conditions, while others may be a consequence of the activity, environmental conditions, or an unrecognized medical condition.
The bottom line, when you witness the collapse of an athlete, you may be responsible for their immediate and appropriate care. But what do you do? Who do you call? Where do you start?
This course will teach you the importance of developing Emergency Action Plans and practicing them, including assigning responsibilities to team members. You’ll discover the three H’s; HEART, HEAT and HEAD and their relationship to potentially fatal injuries and illnesses.
When your athlete collapses and you need to act, you will know an action plan designed to take you step by step through the process of helping the collapsed athlete. You will be prepared when any emergency arises.
