               BETHLEHEM FOOTBALL COMMUNITY SERVICE

Community service is very important to our program. We will have community service
events available beginning in June. The first is an opportunity for members of our
program to read to the kids at Hamagrael Elementary School. We will need 8-10
volunteers for this program. We are also attempting to participate in a town community
service event for the second straight year. We were very successful in our community
cleanup efforts last year. Finally, we will have our Future Eagles camp at Hamagrael this
year during the last week of June. It is very important that you become involved in these
community service events.



                                       PRACTICES

Playing football at Bethlehem is a major commitment that takes time and dedication.
Practices are very important for the improvement of players’ skills, as well as their
conditioning and safety. Practices begin on Wednesday, August 15th. All players are
expected to be at all practices. This includes practices before school starts and during the
school year. The only excuses to miss practice time are: academics, illness/injury or a
family emergency. Players who miss practice may not be able to participate in a game
that week. Also, players who miss practice during the summer may not be eligible for the
first game.


                           CONCUSSION/HEAD INJURIES

This is a major topic of discussion in football today. It is not a topic that we take lightly.
We have a policy in place that we use to ensure that each player is fully ready to play and
cleared by medical personnel after he has sustained a concussion. For the first time this
season, all of our coaches will be trained in concussion management. Also, for the first
time, we will be testing all of our players at the beginning of the season to use as a
baseline in determining whether a player’s brain is working to its full capacity.

We need everyone’s help to ensure player safety. We will be educating our players about
what to look for in determining if he has a head injury. We also need the help of parents
and guardians. In this packet, you will find an order form for a book called Parents’
Guide to Sports Concussions. We encourage you to order a copy of this book. We, the
Bethlehem football community, believe that football is a safe sport, if played properly.
However, it is a full contact sport, and injuries occur. We will take every precaution to
ensure that each player is safe and that these injuries are properly evaluated and cared for.
