Risk of Participation

All athletes and parents must realize the risk of serious injury which may result from athletic participation. Washington County Schools will use the following safeguards and make every effort to eliminate injury.

  • Mandate that all head coaches conduct a parent/athlete meeting prior to the start of each season to fully explain athletic policies and to advise, caution, and warn parents/athletes of potential injury and dangers of participation.
  • Maintain a continuing education program for coaches to learn the most-up-to-date techniques and skills to be taught in their sport.
  • Risk of concussion and head injury.
