    (crosse)

    other NCHSAA Ejection Policy criteria 1 game in
    football and 2 games in all other sports.
  • When the combative act causes an opponent to
    retaliate, it is a fight and carries a double
    penalty.

39
NCHSAA Regulations
  • Un-sanctioned Sports/Activities
  • Schools may sponsor teams in sports not
    sanctioned by the NCHSAA (e.g. gymnastics,
    weightlifting, womens field hockey, mens
    volleyball).
  • Even though such sports are not sanctioned by the
    NCHSAA, member schools should work, wherever
    possible, to adhere to the ideals and guidelines
    established by the NCHSAA for their member
    schools in sports which they do sanction. The
    need to promote sportsmanship, to protect
    instructional time, or the physiological and
    emotional needs of maturing teens should not
    disappear simply because it is not a sport
    sanctioned by the NCHSAA.

    Sports What You Need to Know is now
    available from the National Federation of State

    on the day they suffer a concussion
  • Returning an athlete to play before complete
    resolution of symptoms can lead to recurrent
    concussion, prolonged post-concussion symptoms,
    OR even Second Impact Syndrome (which is often
    fatal)
  • An athlete with suspected concussion cannot
    return to play until he/she is cleared by a
    licensed medical physician
  • Managing concussions is difficult even for
    well-trained and experienced medical providers.
    Coaches, you do not want this responsibility (or

    injury should be immobilized and evaluated by
    medical personnel

45
Sports Medicine Heart Issues
  • Sudden cardiac death occurs in young athletes for
    a variety of reasons
  • Most are due to genetic abnormalities of heart
    rhythms or heart anatomy
  • Drugs can trigger cardiac arrest (cocaine,
    stimulants, anabolic steroids, and ephedrine are
    common culprits)
  • Heat stroke can lead to cardiac arrest
  • Viral illnesses can cause myocarditis
    (infection of the heart muscle) which can cause
    sudden cardiac arrest
  • Sickle cell trait makes athletes more likely to
    have sudden cardiac arrest (more common in
    African-Americans)

46
Sports Medicine Heart Issues
  • There are red flags which can tip us off to
    undiagnosed heart problems
  • Chest pain with exertion

Sports Medicine Heat
Illness
  • Prevention is key
  • Be aware of heat index (see handbook)
  • General Rule for high risk
  • 70 to 80 F with high humidity (gt 70)
  • 80 to 90 F with moderate humidity
  • 90 F with low humidity (lt 30)
  • Practice at cooler times when feasible (mornings,
    evenings)

50
Sports Medicine Heat Illness
  • Allow athletes/teams to acclimate and become
    accustomed to heat over time
  • Allow regular breaks for cooling and hydration
  • Monitor body weight pre/post practice
  • Recognize early and initiate cooling immediately
  • confusion, collapse, nausea/vomiting

51
Sports Medicine Skin Infections

    quite common and can be severe
  • Skin infections are spread by skin-to-skin
    contact, sharing pads/equipment/work-out gear,
    dirty equipment
  • Any boil or abscess needs medical evaluation

52
