Concussions in Youth Sports
Did you know?......

A concussion is a brain injury and all brain injuries are serious. They are caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or by a blow to another part of the body with the force transmitted to the head. They can range from mild to severe and can disrupt the way the brain normally works. Even though most concussions are mild, all concussions are potentially serious and may result in complications including prolonged brain damage and death if not recognized and managed properly. Signs and symptoms of concussion may show up right after the injury or can take hours or days to fully appear. If your child reports any symptoms of concussion, or if you notice the symptoms or signs of concussion yourself, seek medical attention right away.

LSA Commitment:

To help ensure the health and safety of young athletes, LSA is adopting the Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports initiative, developed by the CDC, 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.

Jersey Donation Collection

Lincolnshire Sports Association will be collecting new or gently used sports jerseys for donation to the Sports Shed, a local organization that provides sports items for kids in need.

 

From now through July 8th, you can drop off your jerseys at North Park.  There will be a bin located near the concessions stand.  There will also be bins located at Karen Borgerding’s house (12 Reliance Lane) and Gina Stec’s house (208 Surrey).  You can drop your items at any of these three locations. 

 

Please note the following:

 

We are collecting sports jerseys only.  No equipment, please!  They can be soccer, baseball or basketball jerseys, but basketball jerseys are particularly needed.   LSA House Basketball will be using new jerseys next year so this is a good chance to get rid of your old ones!

 

Jerseys must be in relatively good condition.  They cannot be stained, torn or otherwise damaged.  We cannot take socks, but soccer shorts are accepted.

 

During the Summer Slam Baseball Tournament (June 22-26), all three bins will be at North Park.

 

Please direct any questions to Karen Borgerding (karen@lincolnshiresports.org) or Gina Stec (gina@lincolnshiresports.org).

The Lincolnshire Sports Association is seeking new members to join its board of directors.    The role of the Board is to set the strategy and vision for the organization as well as carry out a variety of sports related programs for the children in our community.  

Specifically, the board is seeking new members to fill the following roles:

Director of Rec Basketball
Director of Rec Soccer
Director of Travel Baseball
