FHSAA Weekly Update - August 12, 2019

NEW PROCESS FOR UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT EJECTION

Members schools are to submit an AT6 Form (Unsportsmanlike Conduct Incident Report Form) within 24 hours if your school has an ejection during a contest. The form is located at https://www.fhsaa.org/forms/general  under Forms; General Forms; AT6. The form is due within 24 hours of the contest in which the ejection occurs and can be filled out by the Principal/Head of School, Assistant Principal or Athletic Director. Please note this is the same requirement for the official's crew if an ejection occurs. Our office will respond to the schools once both the school and the official have submitted the form. Per FHSAA Policy 30, the ejected individual(s) is ineligible for at least two(2) contests [one (1) in football]. The school can submit film to the FHSAA office with the submission of the AT6 and include any disciplinary actions taken, if deemed necessary.

Please contact JHarrison [at] fhsaa [dot] org (Justin Harrison) if you have any questions.

FREE COURSE - CONCUSSION IN SPORTS

School administrators and coaches are encouraged to share with their student-athletes the FHSAA's FREE August Course of the Month, "Concussion in Sports." It is a free online education course available on the NFHS Learning Center at www.NFHSLearn.com. 

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.

A Spanish track is also available for this course.
