Calling ALL Managers and Coaches

2018 spring coach's safety meeting is scheduled for Wednesday March 14th 6-8pm at the BALL Clubhouse.

We will be reviewing little league safety, injury reports and a number of other coaching tips! ALL coaches should try to attend, at least one representative from each team is required to attend.

BALL requires that all Board Members, Managers, Coaches, and any person helping on the field, pass a background check prior to working with children. There will be at least one person at the field that has met this requirement.

Every effort is made to ensure that coaches are trained, qualified and approved for working with kids at this level

 Information about Concussions

As a Manager or Coach, you are mandated by Oregon Law to familiarize yourself about concussions.  To accomplish this, please complete the heads Up Concussion Training provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention by clicking here.

In addition to the CDC training, BALL has implemented the following procedures if the risk of a concussion occurs:

  • If a player experiences a blow to the head by a ball, bat, other person, or any other manner, the player must be attended to immediately even if that means that the game or practice must be paused.
  • An evaluation must be performed and if there are any symptoms of a concussion, the player shall be taken out of the practice or, if during a game, the game for at least one inning. A parent has the ability to join you and the player in the dugout or to have their player join them in the stands so that they can aid in evaluating the severity of the situation. If you and the parent agree, the player can re-enter the game. If either of you believe that the player likely has some level of a concussion, the player is not to return to the game. If the injury appears severe, medical attention should be sought immediately by calling 911 or by having the parent/guardian transport the player to a medical professional. You are not, at any time or any under circumstances, to transport a player to a medical professional. If the player seeks medical attention, they must provide a doctor’s note stating that they are cleared to play before they can play with their team in any capacity. Please provide the parent with the Head’s Up Concussion Information form found in your first aid kit. Also be sure to complete an Incident Report and file it with Korey Kather, our Safety Officer.

It Takes All of Us

The prevention, identification and treatment of concussions is everyone’s duty: the league’s, yours and your parents, and players. Together, we can insure that we have a safe environment where our players are protected from serious injury.
