Important Information That Could be a Matter of Life or Death!

As you can see below, the NFHS has launched a "free" on line course dealing with Acclimatization and Heat Illness Prevention.  Given the extremely hot summer to date this is a must see course for all school personnel involved with interscholastic athletics especially those participating in football.  Heat related death continues to be the number one preventable cause of death in athletics across the country.  Sadly, the number of deaths has not changed since data collection began in the 1950s.  Especially vulnerable are football players due to the equipment they wear and the fact that certain positions require student athletes to be physically large.  These are the same student athletes that traditional wisdom and practice has been to make them do extra physical work in order to get them into shape.  Football deaths due to heat exertion generally occur in the first couple of days of practice and involve this population of student athletes.  The course is about 20 minutes long and is very clear and concise.  The Sport Medicine Committee continues to debate restrictions on double sessions like have been imposed by the NCAA or stricter guidelines for rest between such sessions.  You can expect, however, that this film and the NFHS or National Athletic Director's Association Guidelines will soon be mandatory for NHIAA member schools.  This is a must see course that could save a life so all schools are urged to have coaches and other appropriate people in all sports review the material prior to the start of the up-coming season!  Just go to http://www.nfhslearn.com/ and follow the instructions for this "free" course.
