Over the past few years, we have been force-fed statistic after statistic about how dangerous football is to the brain health of our players, and participation has declined nearly everywhere across the country.
While it’s a given that playing in the NFL is inherently more dangerous than playing high school football, prep coaches from the youth level to varsity level almost everywhere are fighting the stigma with parents that football is unsafe for their child.
However, one Stanford researcher has a differing opinion, with some interesting statistics to back.
The Mayo Clinic found that the risk of high school football players developing degenerative neurological diseases later in life is no greater than if they had been in the band, glee club or choir.”
The article is really well done, and has some great statistical information, while at the same time being written from a concerned – yet informed and realistic – parent’s perspective. Give it a look, and pass it on to concerned parents if necessary.
Being punctual strengthens and reveals your integrity.
If you tell someone that you will meet them at a certain time, you have essentially made them a promise. And if you say you’ll be there at 5:30, and yet arrive at 5:45, you have essentially broken that promise. Being on time shows others that you are a man of your word. Conclusion: BE ON TIME EVERY PRACTICE, EVERY GAME!
Being punctual builds and reveals your discipline. The punctual player shows that he can organize his time, that he pays attention to details. Conclusion: If you’re always late, it shows us, you can’t focus on details.
Being punctual shows your respect for others. Being late is a selfish act, for it puts your needs above another’s.
Being late is a form of stealing. That’s a tough truth, but it’s a truth nonetheless. When you make others wait for you, you rob minutes from them that they’ll never get back.
Conclusion: Show up at practice early to have time for a change and get ready. You should be prepared on the field at 5:30 pm. Be on time on the bus when we go away. Show up at least 1 hour before a game.
We do not allow bad weather to deter us from our plans unless it’s really and truly inclement where it puts participants at risk. You should know that games and practices are held even though there is precipitation. Therefore, get ready to break out the umbrellas and rain gear.
