Sign Up for Our Webinar: “Overcoming the Threat of Severe Weather to Student-Athletes, Staff, and Visitors”
- Apr 06, 2018
Coaches and Athletic Directors have a plethora of safety concerns to address. One concern that stays constant each year is severe weather. Last year alone, Earth Networks detected 106,348,251 total lightning strikes in the U.S. How many were near your outdoor athletic operations?
Each of these strikes was a potential threat to anyone outdoors, including student-athletes. Your school should be overcoming the threat of severe weather to student-athletes this spring season. During practices, travel, and games, student-athletes are at risk for lightning strikes and other forms of severe weather. Not to mention, coaches, referees, and spectators are at risk as well. It’s important to have a severe weather plan to ensure the safety of all involved parties and to avoid a weather-related tragedy.
Learn how to protect your student-athletes, spectators, trainers, and others during outdoor events at our free educational webinar on managing weather safety. Mark your calednars for Tuesday, April 17 at 2 PM ET.
