WPA

I took the free class for the parents. I thought it was run very well. The material was straight forward. And the instructor was very prompt in responding to the communications with us. I did fine the thread organization to be different that what I have been accustom to in other online classes. As a...

Expanding on the theme of is it the right call idea.

SO can we run a survey here. Maybe the moderator could help out. Post the video and then ask what call should be made. Have two sections for the answers to appear. One for us novice parent spectators To make the choice. and another hidden one for the pros to use. After the parent one is released you...

Head butt Video

I see the defender holding the attacker in the center. Then the attacker uses his head to strike the defender in the face to get him to release his grip. Isn't that an act of violence? as defined in the rules; 3.4.6 Head Butt A head butt occurs when a player hits back with the head at an opponent by...

injury aviodance

I appreciate all the fine response to this subject of head butting. I was sometimes Tee'd off at some of the responses that did not support the position I thought needed attention. And at other times I felt a great amount of support. I was inspired to take the WPA courses for parents this week Thank...

personnal responsibility

I think that I must be old fashioned.... It has always been my practice to mandate MYSELF what safety equipment my kids wear. 20 years ago, I made my kids wear helmets when they skateboarded...I was one of the rare parents who did so but I was not going to chance my kids getting head injuries befor...

mouth guard

I am getting my son a mouth guard and he is now willing to wear it.
I am also consulting with the local HS league and state division to find out why there are no mouth guard requirements in the rules.

Mouth Guard

Control could be done at the start of the contest when the ref checks for clipped finger nails. Show your mouth guard and then at least you brought one, if you loose it or don;t want to wear it , well it's on you the player.

Good discussion

Head butting

Thanks again for the insight into water polo. You have obviously been at this way longer that myself. Rules do change over time to even the playing field and protect against injury. Horse racing is very controls, Baseball changes things to even up the pitcher/batter dual and now there is talk of doi...

Head butting

Thanks for the Frank discussion and insight to playing, coaching and refin water polo. It is probably safe to say that this is also sage advice for any sport. Points well taken and I will move on to one more thought about injuries. My Definition of Fair was meant to create a opportunity for each tea...

head butting

LABertocci Again I have been reading some of the posts you put up in the various sections. You appear to stand up for coach responsibility and ref training to promote a fair game. I did not get the same feel from your responses to my questions and call for action with respect to head butting ( not t...
