Meanwhile, our V2 players got to sub into the V1 line-up on occasion, played 4 dual matches
against V1 teams (and won), and played against 4 schools with their own V2 teams.
Our JV teams were super resilient against the weather, enjoying practices, dual matches, and
lots of inter-team challenge ladder play!
I’m currently working to set-up a Fall Social Event (ETA: early October) and planning to be out
supporting the Fairview Boy’s team for their matches - especially the upcoming one vs Boulder
High on Tuesday Sept 12th.
A concussion is a mild brain injury that temporarily affects the way the brain works and can lead to symptoms such as headache, dizziness, and confusion.
A concussion happens when the brain is injured. This can happen when the head is hit — for example, from a fall. But concussions also can happen without a blow to the head — for example, in a car accident when the head snaps forcefully forward and back. The strong movement causes chemical and blood flow changes in the brain. These changes lead to concussion symptoms.
You can't see a concussion on an x-ray or scan. Signs and symptoms of concussion can show up right after the injury or may not appear or be noticed until days or weeks after the injury. If your student reports any symptoms of concussion, or if you notice the symptoms yourself, seek medical attention and let your school's health team know.
Seek medical attention right away. A health care professional will be able to decide how serious the concussion is and when it is safe for your student to return to full activity.
If your student is an athlete, keep them out of play. Concussions take time to heal. Don't let your student return to play until a health care professional says it's OK. Students who return to play too soon - while the brain is still healing - risk a greater chance of having a second concussion. Second or later concussions can be very serious. They can cause permanent brain damage, affecting your student for a lifetime.
Report any prior concussion. Doctors should know if your student had a recent concussion.
If your student is not an athlete, they still need time to recover and heal. Keep physical and mental activity low key and let your school know - they will facilitate a return to learning strategy to support your student.
