Last Updated: August 1, 2015
Welcome to the 2015 season!!!
There are a few changes for the upcoming season:
1) Limited Contact Rule: There will be no contact on consecutive days. Contact is defined as practice, scrimmage (inter-squad or with another team) or game that include players in full pads contacting each other. For example: if you have a game on Sunday, your team can NOT have 'contact' until Tuesday. If you scrimmage on Tuesday or conduct full-contact drills during practice, your team can NOT have 'contact' until Thursday.
2) Injury Reporting: All coaches and/or League Directors are to report any injury to the LCLYF commissioner within eight hours of occurrence.
3) Roster and Weigh-in Form: We have removed the D.O.B. from the form and replaced it with School Grade (1st - 6th).
Schedules will be available at the annual coaches meeting held on Sunday, August 9th, at 5:00 at the Granville Intermediate School. Rules for 2015 are available on this site, you should have a copy and know them. See you coaches on the 9th!!!
House Bill 143: Concussions in youth sports
To all parents, coaches and league directors:
With the passage of HB143 it is incumbent on all of us to become familiar with and educated about concussions. Under the handouts tab is information that comes from the CDC (Center for Disease Control) that all of you should take the time to read. It is all of our responsibilities to protect our children from harm, whether during a practice or game.
Parents: You need to read this information. I will also have a form for all of you to sign before your player can participate in the 2013 season. You should also ask your coaches (all of them) to see their certificate of completion for taking the "Heads-up Concussion in Youth Sports" on-line class. Any that don't have the certificate or didn't take the class (to its completion is not allowed to coach a practice or game in the LCLYF). I should have copies of all certificates of coaches before the July 29th or the first day of practice.
Coaches: You'd better take this seriously, it's a law. Beyond that I will suspend you for a full year if you fail at any point to follow this law entirely. This is a serious issue and we are responsible for protecting our children and you're at forefront. You see the players every day. I will support you completely if you get certified. I took the class and have my certification, it takes about 30 minutes.
Directors: You should also get certified and be aware that parents, coaches, referees and YOU can remove a player of the game. Once the player is removed he may not return to participation (game or practice) until he is cleared by a licensed health care provider. You should absolutely become educated re: HB143 as it is our responsibilities to enforce and uphold it.
Thanks to you all!
