Section XI Safety Workshop
As part of its
mission to provide a positive, safe and enjoyable athletic experience for the
83,000+ student-athletes of Suffolk County, Section XI-NYSPHSAA sponsored a
Safety Workshop on October 20th at Mill Pond Golf and Catering. Over 140 athletic directors, athletic trainers,
officials, administrators and coaches participated in the workshop, which intended to provide each
in attendance with additional educational resources
designed to create safer environments for the student-athletes, coaches and fans.
Topics included, "Event Security and Management", "Making the Game Safer"
and "Social Media - Positive or Negative?". We would like to
presenters - Jay Hammes, Frank Cutinella and Pat Smith - for their insight,
guidance and vision into each of these areas. We also wish to thank all those involved
for their commitment to the safety of all in high school sports.
