Posted May 16/16 - Youth Sports Concussion and Brain Injury Hearings

A follow up hearing from the March 2016 discussion on concussions and brain injury by the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, Chaired by Rep. Tim Murphy (R) Pennsylvania was held on Friday the 13th of May. Specific to prevention and research of youth sports concussion.

While over 30 million participate in youth sports (football) from age 5-18 making them the largest demographic within the sport of football, they also are the most underserved when it comes to prevention,research and information.

Question- in regards to youth sports are whether their are edcuational policy guidlines in place for coaches, players and parents and if so how are they implemented? was one question asked by the committee of the panel.

Question number two- was based upon the challenges of youth leagues and team data on concussion policy information and injury reporting on concussions.

Rep. Diana Degette (D) Colorado ranking member stated that experts in the March 2016 round table meeting suggested that in 7-10 years they would have enough evidenced based recommendations for policy involving safety protocol for youth sports, she goes on to state that if that were to be taken as true she herself as a mom would say that would be to long. And experts on the May 13th panel also said that is rediculous and that the information can be collected right now, but one of the problems is how to collect it since their probably is no process in place within youth sports currently to do so.

Some of her questions were based upon when is a safe start time for playing, football how many times per week should contact be allowed, and what type of education should be implemented for coaches.

One other surprise came from the hearing was the number of concussions from practice within the high school level numbers like 60 to 70 % does this suprise you while reading this, after all you probably thought the high school coach was better at this well guess again, he too also has some learning to do, the NFL USA Football arm also came under fire when asked why if they think and now know that the possiblity of practice contact can cause concussion why does it still support a 4 day contact practice advocation (the representitive went silent and had no response) this same representitive stated that the USA football arm didn't have the money to reach out to all levels of football with education on concussion, but one problem with that statement is that in 2014 the NFL gave $40 million dollars to USA football question would be where did all the money go?

Now what was gained from the hearing one very clear agenda and that being that in the future the government is about to mandate an educational policy into youth football but will enter every other youth sport as well.

The Benbrook Stars prep academy is already ahead of this our program is a school of football training, the coaches are required to attend classroom study and receive a certificate in introduction to coaching which covers CPR, Health and Safety, Concussion Awareness and other protocol involved in being a coach, who in today's game is a teacher of the training health technique and mental understanding of the game, Gno Metric Analytical to track injury and any concussion to players data. 

Posted Mar 30/16 - Concussion Education

Our players will receive information that gives parent's an understanding of what concussion's are and what to look for also as an organization the player will receive a direct conversation about talking with coaches about any out of the ordinary head pain not usually associated with them from normal day to day experiences the player may have away from the field.

Posted Jul 15/15 - Heat and practice

The rules for Independant schools districts are if the temperture is too high no outside practice allowed .

But youth sports have yet to fully adopt a certain set of universal rules pertaining to this subject, but should its a new day for organized football and certain things must be conducted differently .

With kids dying from heat exposure every year youth coaches must become deligent in understanding that some of a teams players have issues that can't be ignored so here are just a few simple things coaches should do.

1. Issue information on eating well fruits and vegetables should be on all players diet list and kids are exposed to them during school lunch at the minium .

2. Talk about the importance of being hydrated drink fluid two hours before the practice and plenty during the practice.

3. Vary the workout and young players have a want to push through certain injuries this is a no no the body will tell you when it needs rest and you the coach should suggest to that player while if he is able to attend the practice he can't fully participate in certain aspects of the practice.

Football today is becoming more of a technical game and you the coach must understand this as well in order to teach the game you must truely understand each players needs on the team from the physical standpoint before assertaining any mental understanding of each player and the roll each will play on the team.

 

Posted May 14/15 - Telcommand Stars

Telcommand Coaching Systems allows coaches to talk with players through the system , which has a microphone that can be implanted inside the helmet practices can now be conducted without yelling at certain players for instruction, and can be used to talk with others such as coaches within 200 yards the Stars prep academy will have quarterback and two other position players outfitted with the system, some high schools college's are using the system in practices and the professional level uses it in games .

The system will allow the Stars to communicate in games much diffirent than other teams they will line up against adjustments will be made quicker .

                                                              Moto: Reach for it and you can !

                                                            

                                            Mission Statement

 

Community pride ,respect for and of all who may be different but very much a like

education life skills and knowledge.

While football is a competition our first goal is to build a foundation of self respect and understanding of our players as a person, and as that goal is attained the physical aspect of the players game will increase.And that will translate into wins or losses.

Either way our players will leave the program knowing the score doesn't always tell the whole story of what is really just a game.
