2024 SPRING MIDDLE SCHOOL GOLF LEAGUE

  For the spring season we are going to do something completely different.  We will open registration to only those that played in the fall—no newcomers or beginners.  Those that played in the fall will be given a code or instructions and only they can register for the spring.  However, we will have a cut off of only 48 players. So once notified that registration is open if you want to participate in the spring season, you will need to register immediately.

 

We are looking at opening on-line registration on Friday, Feb 9.  We will send out a reminder and let you know when it officially will be open.  Parents will need to register their players on-line as before.  Repeat-- we will cut off registration when the first 48 players from the fall season register!

 

So, what else is different about the Spring Season?  We will have a ZOOM orientation as before to go over the season and explain in more detail and answer your questions about the season. As soon as plans are complete, I’ll send out a revised Spring Season Program and Frequently Asked Questions and Answers on the spring program. We are planning the season to begin on March 24 with a much more detailed and focused individual instructional golf clinic.  The clinic will be done in smaller groups of only 24 players at Chimney’s Golf Course by three professional golf instructors.

 

NO REFUNDS ONCE REGISTRED

NEW FOR 2014  CONCUSSION POLICY
Parent/Athlete Concussion Information Sheet
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that changes the way the brain normally works. A concussion is caused by bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. Even a “ding,” “getting your bell rung,” or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious.
WHAT ARE THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF CONCUSSION?
Signs and symptoms of concussion can show up right after the injury or may not appear or be noticed until days or weeks after the injury.
If an athlete reports one or more symptoms of concussion listed below after a bump, blow, or jolt to
the head or body, s/he should be kept out of play the day of the injury and until a health care professional, experienced in evaluating for concussion, says s/he is symptom-free and it’s OK to return to play.
Did You Know?
• Most concussions occur without loss of consciousness.
• Athletes who have, at any point in their lives, had a concussion have an increased risk for another concussion.
• Young children and teens are more likely to get a concussion and take longer to recover than adults.

CONCUSSION DANGER SIGNS
In rare cases, a dangerous blood clot may form on the brain in a person with a concussion and crowd the brain against the skull. An athlete should receive immediate medical attention if after a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body s/he exhibits any of the following danger signs:
• One pupil larger than the other
• Is drowsy or cannot be awakened
• A headache that not only does not diminish, but gets worse
• Weakness, numbness, or decreased coordination
• Repeated vomiting or nausea
• Slurred speech
• Convulsions or seizures
• Cannot recognize people or places
• Becomes increasingly confused, restless, or agitated
• Has unusual behavior
• Loses consciousness (even a brief loss of consciousness should be taken seriously)
WHY SHOULD AN ATHLETE REPORT THEIR SYMPTOMS?
If an athlete has a concussion, his/her brain needs time to heal. While an athlete’s brain is still healing, s/he is much more likely to have another concussion. Repeat concussions can increase the time it takes to recover. In rare cases, repeat concussions in young athletes can result in brain swelling or permanent damage to their brain. They can even be fatal.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU THINK YOUR ATHLETE HAS A CONCUSSION?

If you suspect that an athlete has a concussion, remove the athlete from play and seek medical attention. Do not try to judge the severity of the injury yourself. Keep the athlete out of play the day of the injury and until a health care professional, experienced in evaluating for concussion, says s/he is symptom-free and it’s OK to return to play.

Rest is key to helping an athlete recover from a concussion. Exercising or activities that involve a lot of concentration, such as studying, working on the computer, or playing video games, may cause concussion symptoms to reappear or get worse. After a concussion, returning to sports and school is a gradual process that should be carefully managed and monitored by a health care professional.
Remember
Concussions affect people differently. While most athletes with a concussion recover quickly and fully, some will have symptoms that last for days, or even weeks. A more seri-ous concussion can last for months or longer.
It’s better to miss one game than the whole season. For more information on concussions, visit:
