Am I allowed to watch my camper participate?

Parents and other spectators are welcome to observe the camp. In order to create a safe environment for our campers, camp staff, parents and other spectators, all parents and spectators should follow the instructions of camp personnel and remain in the designated public areas. Parents, spectators and children risk being struck by a ball or possibly being run into by a camper or service vehicle. Please use caution while observing camp activities. Animals are not permitted at camp facilities. Parents should closely supervise any children who accompany them to watch camp activities. All parents, spectators and children should refrain from using, moving or otherwise handling any sports equipment that is located at a camp facility.

What do I do if my camper needs to bring medication to camp?

If a camper would like to bring any medication (whether the medication was dispensed to the camper based on a prescription or was purchased over-the-counter) to our camp, then the camper’s parent or legal guardian must:

(1) notify us of the type of medication(s) and whether it requires refrigeration or other special storage; and

(2) Request approval to bring the medication(s) to camp.

To adequately assess requests to bring medication to our camp, contact us at bigredfootballschool2015@gmail.com at least 21 days prior to the start of the camp. Campers may only bring medication(s) to camp that have been approved in writing by our camp director.

If the medication is intended to treat a potentially life-threatening condition, then a camper will be permitted to carry necessary items (e.g., an EPI-pen, an inhaler for asthma) during camp provided that the camper has received the advance written approval of the camp director discussed in the preceding paragraph.

What is a concussion?

To help ensure the health and safety of young athletes, CDC developed the HEADS UP Concussion in Youth Sports initiative to offer information about concussions to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. The HEADS UP initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.
