Before Summer Comes - Equipment Makeup, Clinic, Online Store
Hello WYF and Cheer families. Before Summer Break begins, I wanted to send a few reminders:
Equipment. For the very few who havent picked up equipment, we will hand out equipment on Monday, Aug 13th before practice begins that night.
Online Store. Please remember to order merchandise in our online store before the end of June. Merchandise will be ready for pick up mid-July. It's a fundraiser for the WYF & Cheer program (we are not doing the raffle tickets this year), so we appreciate your support.
Summer Camps and Clinics. Many have asked me about camps and clinics for this Summer. Coach Palumbo will be sending out information for flag clinics.
Also, Chad Upshaw, former NFL tight end of the Carolina Panthers & Denver Broncos, will be hosting a GAME CHANGING PERFORMANCE and SPEED SCHOOL at the WHS this Summer.

The athletic trainer and all coaches are to be aware of oncoming inclement weather. If a coach sees a flash of lightning, he is to notify the athletic trainer immediately. A flash-to-bang count of 30 seconds or less should be used as the minimal determinant of when to suspend activities- all athletes and coaches are to be removed from the field and seek shelter indoors or under the bleachers. Lightning safety strategies include avoiding shelter under trees and avoiding open fields and spaces. Waiting 30 minutes after the last flash of lightning or sound of thunder is recommended before athletic or recreational activities are resumed. The athletic trainer will notify coaches when it is safe to return to play.
Flash-to-Bang Method: Begin counting seconds after a flash of lightning is seen. Stop counting when thunder is heard. Divide this count by 5 to determine the distance of the lightning (in miles). For example, a flash-to-bang count of 30 seconds equates to a distance of 6 miles (National Athletic Trainers’ Association Position Statement: Lightning Safety for Athletics and Recreation).
