1 Batchelor Middle School Coaches Handbook Revised 2014

2 MCCSC Code of Conduct for Coaches The function of a coach is to properly educate students through participation in interscholastic competition. The MCCSC Athletics programs are designed to enhance academic achievement and should never interfere with opportunities for academic success. Athletes should be treated as young men and women whose physical, intellectual, and moral development is of primary concern at all times. In recognition of this, the following guidelines have been adopted: 1. Coaches will constantly uphold the honor and dignity of the profession. In all dealings with students, parents, officials, school administration, the IHSAA, the media, and the public, the coach shall serve as an example of the highest ethical and moral standards. 2. Coaches will take responsibility for athletes well-being and development, at all times exhibiting sound injury and risk-management practices during practices and games. 3. Coaches will provide a physically and emotionally safe environment for athletes during practice, as well as during competition. Coaches will practice safe training and conditioning techniques that are considered current to the respective sport or activity he or she is coaching. 4. Coaches are expected to be knowledgeable about nutrition, hydration, safe and healthy weight loss or gain, concussions, cardiac arrest and healthy eating behaviors. 5. Coaches are expected to remain mindful of their student-athletes academic progress and standing, and to conform to the guidelines for academic eligibility established by the IHSAA/School. 6. Coaches shall take a pro-active role in the prevention of drug, alcohol, and tobacco abuse, and discourage the use of performance-enhancing substances. Any known violation will be reported to the school administration. 7. Contest officials shall have the respect and support of the coaches and players, and coaches should promote conduct that positively supports this ideal. Coaches should never indulge in unsportsmanlike conduct or conduct which might result in unsportsmanlike conduct by players and spectators toward opponents or officials.

4 Batchelor Athletic Coaching Responsibilities 1. The coaches will abide by all the policies and guidelines of Batchelor Middle School and MCCSC. (See your Batchelor Athletic Handbook). These rules and procedures have been adopted by the administration and are enumerated in the IHSAA guidelines for middle level schools. 2. The coaches will maintain a good image for the students, parents, and the school. The manner in which they conduct themselves, including what they say and how they say it will be modeled by their athletes. Profanity, sarcasm, name calling, put-downs, baiting officials, and technical fouls or penalties for unsportsmanlike conduct are unacceptable in any class program by either the coaches or athletes. Any coach who is removed from a game by an official or administrator due to poor conduct will not be able to coach in the following game. Coaches must not forget the influence they have over young people. Coaches must be aware of their appearance at events. Coaches and their team are in the public eye. They represent Batchelor Middle School. 3. The coaches will communicate with the athletic director, athletes, and parents of the athletes. (Team rules, practice rules, travel departure times, etc.) The coaches will supply the athletic director all information that is sent home to parents or players. 4. Coaches will the athletic director/secretary with announcements after meets/games. 5. The coaches will provide a phone number or to the athletes, parents of the athletes, athletic director, and principal where they can be contacted. 6. The coach will provide a team roster (complete with phone numbers when applicable) to the members of the team, parents and athletic director. The coaches will submit to the athletic director a roster of those athletes taking part in their program at the beginning of the season and will keep the athletic director informed of any changes. 7. The coaches will attend all of their scheduled athletic competitions and practices. 8. Bus discipline is the responsibility of the coach. There will be no stops at food or other establishments unless approved by the athletic director in advance. 9. The coaches will plan and schedule all practices and give that schedule to athletes so parents know what days and times to pick up athletes. A practice schedule should also be submitted to the athletic director. 10. The coaches will conduct practices a minimum of four times per week during their athletic season. Cheerleaders should practice a minimum of once per week during their season. *It is understood that scheduled contests, weather, etc. could affect this. 11. The coaches will play only those athletes who are eligible as determined by the athletic director. 12. The coaches will supervise locker rooms, practices, events, bus rides, and ensure that all athletes are picked up after practices and events. No students are to be in the locker room without adult supervision. Any student not riding home on the bus at an away game when a bus is provided needs to have a written statement from parent or guardian regarding this. 13. The coaches will always emphasize to their athletes that education comes first. A coach is a teacher. Athletes must be taught sportsmanship. The most revealing part of a game is what happens when it is

5 over. How athletes react to victory or defeat tells people how well they have been taught some of the valuable lessons of the sport. 14. The coaches are responsible for keeping an inventory of and maintaining their team s equipment. All uniforms and equipment issued should be recovered within one week of the final game. Clean uniforms, equipment, and an inventory list must be given to the athletic director at end of the season. 15. The coaches will select student managers and statisticians, outline their responsibilities, and train them. Coaches should make sure players understand the limits of a manager s responsibilities. 16. Coaches will not hold or be responsible for holding fundraising. Coaches should not collect money nor allow parents to collect money without prior consent of the athletic director or principal. Although participation in most Batchelor extracurricular activities is without cost, fees for camps, equipment, or spirit related paraphernalia may occasionally be collected by the teacher, sponsor, or coach. Any school sanctioned request must be signed by the principal on school letterhead stationery. 17. The coaches will make every attempt to play as many athletes as possible during an athletic competition. Opponents must be considered. They have worked hard too, and if they fall short, for whatever reason, they must not be embarrassed. They are pre-adolescent students who go to school socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. Their development can no more be enhanced by a lop-sided defeat than ours can by a lop-sided victory. There is no excuse for intentionally running up a score. 18. Coaches are responsible for securing someone to keep the official score book, the chains at football games, and run concessions at the home games. A sign up for parents to work the games is encouraged. 19. Coaches must carry a copy of the athletes emergency medical forms with them to all events which are not at Batchelor. (MCCSC directive). Coaches should have these same forms available at all times while at Batchelor. The athletic director will help to secure a copy of these. 20. Coaches will distribute Batchelor Athletic Handbooks/concussion information to all of their student/athletes and parents. Each athlete must have it signed by a parent and the athlete before he/she may compete in any event. 21. It is the responsibility of the coaches to see that all student/athletes turn in the signed acknowledgement page from the athletic handbook. 22. The coaches will fill out Participation Awards for all students who completed the season. Coaches may pick up the certificates from the athletic director. Coaches will be expected to attend the fall, winter, or spring sports recognition banquet. 23. Coaches must make an appointment to meet with athletic director to discuss the season and review the attached coach s evaluation. BMS: Maureen Davidoff ext Pam Bradley Transportation: Sidney Ludwig

7 CONCUSSION AND HEAD INJURY FACT SHEET FOR COACHES New Law A new law Student Athletes: Concussions and Head Injuries (IC ) will take effect on July 1, This law requires that schools distribute information sheets to inform and educate coaches, student athletes, and parents of student athletes concerning the nature and risk of concussion and head injury to student athletes, including the risks of continuing to play after concussion or head injury. The law requires that each year, before beginning practice for an interscholastic or intramural sport, a high school student athlete and the student athlete s parents must be given an information sheet, and both must sign and return a form acknowledging receipt of the information to the student athlete s coach. The law further states that a high school athlete who is suspected of sustaining a concussion or head injury in a practice or game, shall be removed from play at the time of injury and may not return to play until the student athlete has received a written clearance from a licensed health care provider trained in the evaluation and management of concussions and head injuries. Definition and Statistics A concussion is a type of brain injury that changes the way the brain normally works. A concussion is caused by a blow to the head or body that causes the brain to move rapidly inside the skull. As many as 3.8 million sports- and recreationrelated concussions occur in the United States each year. Common Causes The potential for concussions is greatest in athletic environments where collisions are common, but can occur with any sport. Even a ding, getting your bell rung, or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious. Concussions can also result from a fall, or from players colliding with each other or with obstacles, such as goalposts. Examples of situations where a concussion could occur include a knock to the head from a fall, a jolt to the torso from a collision, a hit to the head from a stick or ball. Signs and Symptoms It is important to note that concussions can occur without loss of consciousness. If a student exhibits even one of the following signs or symptoms after a blow or bump to the head, a concussion should be suspected and the student should be removed from play and allowed to return to play only after a written release has been obtained by the licensed health care provider who evaluated the student. The signs of a concussion include that the student: appears dazed or stunned, is confused about assignment or position, forgets sports plays, is unsure of game, score or opponent, moves clumsily, answers questions slowly, loses consciousness (even briefly), shows behavior or personality changes, can t recall events prior to hit or fall, or can t recall events after hit or fall. The symptoms of a concussion include the following complaints by the student: headache or pressure in the head, nausea or vomiting, balance problems or dizziness, double or blurry vision, sensitivity to light, feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy or groggy, concentration or memory problems, confusion or does not feel right. Danger Signs If even one of the following signs or symptoms are observed in a student, it should be considered a medical emergency and 911 should be called: one pupil larger than the other, drowsiness or inability to wake up, a headache that gets worse and does not go away, weakness, numbness, or decreased coordination, repeated vomiting or nausea, slurred speech, convulsions or seizures, inability to recognize people or places, increasing confusion, restlessness, or agitation, unusual behavior, or loss of consciousness (even a brief loss of consciousness should be taken seriously). Treatment Since all concussions can be serious, recognition and proper management of concussions when they first occur can help prevent further injury or even death. If you or your staff recognize any (even one) of the above symptoms, the player should be removed from play and assessed by a health care professional (athletic trainer or school nurse) if available. The parents or guardians of the athlete should be informed and the Heads Up parent fact sheet should be given. If the student continues to exhibit any (even one) of the signs or symptoms listed above, the athlete must be seen by a licensed health care provider trained in the evaluation and management of concussions and head injuries, and must receive a written clearance from the health care provider who evaluated the student in order to return to play.

8 Rest is the usual treatment after a concussion or head injury has occurred. The student should return to play based on the treatment plan written by the licensed health care provider. Each student s treatment plan will be individually tailored based on the student s severity of head injury, underlying health condition and ability to resume activities. Typically after a concussion, activity is resumed slowly and gradually increased over time. The timing and speed with which each student returns to normal activity is individual, but follows the progression of beginning with light activity and increasing the activity slowly as the student can tolerate each step without experiencing any signs or symptoms of a concussion. While most athletes with a concussion recover quickly and fully, some will have symptoms that last for days, or even weeks. A more serious concussion can take months before the student is fully recovered. After a concussion, the brain needs time to rest and heal. That is why it is important that students not resume normal activities, especially athletic competition, too soon. If the student returns before his/her brain is healed, they are at increased risk for a second concussion or a longer recovery due to a reoccurrence of concussion signs and symptoms. A repeat concussion that occurs before the brain recovers from the first usually within a short time period (hours, days, or weeks) can slow recovery or increase the chances for long-term problems. In rare cases, repeat concussions can result in edema (brain swelling), permanent brain damage, and even death. Action Plan for a Suspected Concussion 1. Remove the athlete from play. 2. Ensure that the athlete is assessed by a health care professional (athletic trainer or school nurse), if available. Do not try to judge the seriousness of the injury yourself. 3. Inform the athlete s parents or guardians about the possible concussion and give them the Heads Up Concussion in High School Sports A Fact Sheet for Parents. 4. Keep the athlete out of play the day of the injury and until a licensed health care provider trained in the evaluation and management of concussions and head injuries signs and returns the Concussion Evaluation and Release to Play Form for Licensed Health Care Providers.
