We appreciate all of those who volunteer their time to help NWLL in support of our children. The safety of our children is our number one focus and therefore we run background checks on all volunteers.
We wanted to remind everyone that you must fill out a volunteer form if you are working the kids in any way. This includes coaching, assisting the coach, helping on the fields or dug out, or any other activity that interacts with the kids.
If you have not filled out a volunteer for and are doing any of the above activities please fill one out ASAP. If you have any questions please talk to your childs coach.
Please take the time to watch this very important video on field raking and dragging. We spent a lot of money getting the fields fixed this year and want it to last. It will last longer with proper raking. Thank you for your time and help.
A concussion is a brain injury, caused by a blow, bump or jolt to the head that can have serious consequences. It can occur in any sport or recreational activity.
Michigan was the 39th U.S. state to enact a law that regulates sports concussions and return to athletic activity. The law went into full effect on June 30th, 2013.
The sports concussion legislation requires all coaches, employees, volunteers, and other adults involved with a youth athletic activity to complete a concussion awareness on-line training program.
The organizing entity must provide educational materials on the signs/symptoms and consequences of concussions to each youth athlete and their parents/guardians and obtain a signed statementacknowledging receipt of the information for the organizing entity to keep on record.
The law also requires immediate removal of an athlete from physical participation in an athletic activity who is suspected of sustaining a concussion. The student athlete must then receive written clearance from an appropriate health professional before he or she can return to physical activity.
