1. Most people don’t understand cheerleading and the risks associated with the sport. We not only throw ourselves backwards and forwards, but we throw each other into the air and are supposed to catch each other properly. I participated in cheerleading from ages 6 to 22, so my body has been knocked around a lot over the years. Unfortunately, from what I know now, I had several concussions over those 16 years and now suffer from Epilepsy because of them. The incident that sticks out the most to me was when I was dropped during a basketball game on my head from a pyramid. I blacked out, didn’t know where I was for several seconds, and stumbled to get myself up. Neither my coach or our trainer recognized these symptoms and I was never treated. Over the next several weeks, I developed pressure behind my eyes and cheeks, dizziness, and some nausea. I didn’t know what was going on with me, so I mentioned it to our trainer. He associated my symptoms with allergies. Since he didn’t act like it was a big deal, I didn’t mention it to my parents. Eventually my symptoms went away, and I felt normal. Concussions have become a huge topic in sports over the past couple of years and great advancements have been made in the area. I believe if my coach or our trainer had been properly educated on head injuries, I could have been treated properly and probably not had the problems I do now associated with them. I am thankful that concussions are being treated so seriously and I hope it helps others in the future. The most heartbreaking thing about the drowning incident is that it could have been avoided. The first sign of negligence I noticed is that one lifeguard is expected to oversee a large pool with a bunch of kids in it. The lifeguard also gets up out of his chair and begins messing with his umbrella, obviously not paying attention to the kids in the pool. The counselor swims away from the child after dunking him underwater 12 times without making sure the kid was okay and that he wasn’t out of breath. Both the lifeguard and the counselor are obviously not paying attention since they don’t notice the kid drowning right in front of them. What completely floored me was the fact that neither the counselor or the lifeguard was trained in CPR. How do you hire for these positions without making sure they can do their jobs properly? Their number one priority is to make sure these kids stay safe while they are in their care and this camp failed terribly in that regard. The most important thing to take from this tragedy is that it is imperative that parents make sure they thoroughly check out these camps before they send their children to them. Make sure these camps are safe and that their children are in the care of certified professionals that know what to do if tragedy strikes. It is unfortunate that something like this had to happen to get that point across. 2. When I played high school football back in the early 2000’s, I remember training during the summers to get ready for the season. School was not in session yet, but summer workouts were “optional” as in if you did not show you did not play. There were numerous days temperatures easily reached high 90’s. We would have two a day practices and the coaches would push you to your limits. One instance I remember was the coaches getting upset with players goofing off one morning. We had to do sprints, crab walks and bear crawls the whole length of the football field for punishment. I was one of the more athletic individuals and almost passed out. I remember players asking the coaches to go get water, but the coaches would not let us go until we finished all the punishment. Some of the kids easily could have passed out or been pushed too far. One lineman actually walked off the field/team because it was too much. The coaches showed a ton of negligence because kids could have easily suffered heat exhaustion or stroke. They were mad that kids were being kids. The school and coaches for sure could have been liable had something tragic happened. Fortunately, everyone was fine and we got water. No one complained after the fact that I was aware because it happened more than once afterwards. This was around the time a few NFL players dies because of practicing to hard in the heat. The school and coaches should allow for the athletes to get water every 15 minutes or when needed without fear of losing their positions because they do get water. I am not sure how the school operates now, but hopefully they have changed. What a sad video to start the class. Hopefully they get better. The camp showed negligence in not being licensed or trained for child CPR. How do you even host a camp with neither of these essential things in place? You would think most counties would have shut this down without proper things in place. Also, the life guard is more concerned about the umbrella rather than the kids in the pool. The instructor should face criminal charges for leaving the child alone after dunking him numerous times. Not to mention he is at a swim camp probably trying to learn how to swim. The attorney argued all the right things, but I think the attorney should have pushed for an arrest. The lesson I learned is to never leave your children at places they can get into trouble even when you think there are measures in place to keep them safe. ...
