A big barbecue dinner and a guest speaker are set for the Falcon fall sports Parents-Athletes-Coaches meeting next week.
Each sports season requires the meeting, and a parent or caregiver for Falcon athletes is expected to attend. General information will be discussed regarding the sports, and each sport will split up for a short meeting to review expectations, field questions and examine details for each sport. The guest speaker will be Sammamish resident Maui Borden, a high school football and basketball coach and a representative of Proactive Coaching.
While the meetings generally contain the same information as previous years, the school district adopted a concussion/head injury policy for the first time. Players suspected of having a concussion are to be removed from play, analyzed by a physician and must have a physician’s approval before returning to play.
The meeting is scheduled for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22 at the South Whidbey High School auditorium.
