KGLL Safety Matters

SAFETY PLAN PURPOSE AND ASAP MISSION


The King George Little League Safety plan is an overall safety plan for the season covering all safety related issues. It is provided to all League volunteers as a source of responsibilities and procedures to promote safety within the League. It complies with the ASAP (A Safety Awareness Program) Safety Plan requirements and supports the ASAP mission: “To create awareness, through education and information, of the opportunities to provide a safer environment for kids and all participants of Little League Baseball.”  The goal of everyone in the King George Little League organization should be making safety practices routine for all activities.  The responsibility of safety rests with every member of the King George Little League organization.

Lightning Procedure. If you hear thunder, even a distant rumble, or see lightning, immediately clear the field and move to a safe place. Fully enclosed buildings with wiring and plumbing provide the best protection. Sheds, picnic shelters, tents, or covered porches do NOT protect you from lightning. If a sturdy building is not nearby, get into a hard-topped metal vehicle and close all the windows. Stay inside until 30 minutes after the last rumble of thunder or lightning strike. This procedure will be followed until the umpire in charge calls the game due to weather.  This rule applies to all practices as well. There is no exception to the rule.

Accidents and Insurance

WHAT PARENTS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT LITTLE LEAGUE® INSURANCE


The Little League Insurance Program is designed to afford protection to all participants at the most economical cost to the local league. The Little League Player Accident Policy is an excess coverage, accident only plan, to be used as a supplement to other insurance carried under a family policy or insurance provided by an employer. If there is no primary coverage, Little League insurance will provide benefits for eligible charges, up to Usual and Customary allowances for your area. A $50 deductible applies for all claims, up to the maximum stated benefits.  This plan makes it possible to offer exceptional, affordable protection with assurance to parents that adequate coverage is in force for all chartered and insured Little League approved programs and events.  For more information click here.

- A concussion is a brain injury and all are serious.
- Most concussions occur without loss of consciousness.
- Concussions impact the ability to function both on and off the field. This includes cognitive function, vestibular function, ocular function, mood, and more


The NFHS has teamed up with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to educate coaches, officials, parents and students on the importance of proper concussion recognition and management in high school sports. This course highlights the impact of sports-related concussion on athletes, teaches how to recognize a suspected concussion, and provides protocols to manage a suspected concussion with steps to help players return to play safely after a concussion.  Each state's requirements for concussion management are included as part of the course.
