Discussion led by Mr. Justin Harrison & Dr. Peggy Jones Objective: Create Administrative Procedure 30 – Defining Sportsmanship in Relation to Crowds
Reviewing Policy 29 29.1 Home School. The home school administration is responsible for the control of spectators before, during and after an athletic contest. The FHSAA recommends that the home school administration secure uniformed security to assist with this responsibility. 29.2 Visiting School(s). The visiting school administration is encouraged to assist with the control of its own spectators. Visiting school administrators (i.e., principal, FHSAA representative, assistant principals, athletic director, assistant athletic director, assistant coaches, etc.) who are required by their principal to attend the event for supervisory purposes upon presentation of a photo I.D. must be provided complimentary admission to the event, provided the visiting school submits their names to the home school administration by fax in writing on school stationery not less than 24 hours prior to the scheduled starting time of the event. 29.3 State Championship Series. Participating school administration (i.e., principal, FHSAA representative, assistant principals, athletic director, assistant athletic director, assistant coaches, etc.) must be present at district, regional, and state events when their school is competing. Administration must enforce appropriate behavior of their student/adult fan base. 29.4 Officials. The officials assigned to officiate a contest are responsible for the on-the-court or on-the-field conduct of the contest itself. In the event a spectator or spectators interfere with the conduct of a contest or cause an official to become distracted through continual, unrelenting verbal abuse, the official should immediately stop the action and report the spectator or spectators to the home school administration or the nearest uniformed security officer. If the home school administration or uniformed security is unwilling or unable to resolve the situation and the official does not believe the contest can be safely continued, the official must declare the contest ended at that point. Under no circumstance should an official ever confront, challenge, rebuke or threaten a spectator, or make gestures of any kind toward a spectator before, during or after a contest. 29.5 Reports. Both the officials assigned to officiate a contest and the home school administration are required to file with the FHSAA Office within 24 hours a written report on any contest that is terminated due to interference by a spectator(s). Section from Florida High School Athletic Association Handbook 2012-2013

Discussion led by Quinten Ershock Objective: Create guidelines for student-athletes made by student-athletes in order to increase awareness of concussions, keep student-athletes safe & prevent injury.
Concussion Discussion Signs & symptoms lost of memory, vomiting, loss of consciousness, dizziness, dehydration, lack of awareness, fuzzy vision, sensitive to light & sound, extreme irritability How can student-athletes protect themselves? Avoid situations where they could potentially injury their head again - be aware of surroundings Get proper medical attention Dont return to play until cleared by a doctor Wear protective headgear if possible Tell your coach & be honest with yourself – rest if you need it When in doubt, sit out Train with proper techniques in tackling & heading to mitigate the risks of getting a concussion
Student-Athlete Safety What type of injuries have you faced as a student-athlete? Broken bones, pulled hamstrings, concussions, pulled muscles, sprain wrist, shin splints What can be done to prevent injury & stay safe? Drink plenty of water & eat healthy Increase your body temperature & warm up muscles with dynamic stretches Make sure your muscles are loose before participation Utilize proper supervision if necessary – especially in the weight room After injury, ease into play as you dont want to get hurt again Educate yourself about potential injuries that could occur during your sport Take the time to stretch properly
