Incident Report

- Never let your child climb on the net or goal framework. 26 deaths and hundreds of injuries since 1979 resulting from soccer goal accidents.  If you see there is NOT a bag or weight anchoring a goal, please find one to help secure it.

We need to insure that we are providing a safe and enjoyable environment for our children.

Region 605 recommends everyone be familiar with the symptoms of a concussion.

What is a concussion?

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that changes the way the brain normally works. A concussion is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth.

Goal Safety

If you see there is no bag or weight anchoring a goal, please find one to help secure it.

You have nothing to fear from a quiet, unassuming portable soccer goal, right?  Its importance as the focus of a child's goal-kicking effort outweighs any possible danger, right? WRONG!

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has reported 26 deaths and hundreds of injuries since 1979 resulting from soccer goal accidents.
Most of these injuries occur when children climb on top of an unsecured goal, causing it to either break from the strain (in the case of many homemade goals) or simply flip over onto an unsuspecting victim. You only need to review some of the descriptions of injuries and deaths addressed in the CPSC report to become saddened by this easily-preventable problem.

The bottom line is this: Goal safety is everyone's job and volunteers and parents need to be aware of the dangers.   Please help us...

  • Securely anchor or counter-weight portable goals at all times.  If you see there is no bag or weight anchoring, please find one to help secure it.  If none are available please email [email protected] or notify a referee/coach.
  • Never let your child climb on the net or goal framework.


    Hydration

    Before a practice or a game, kids should drink about 12 to 16 ounces of fluid.

    Heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke are all serious (in some cases fatal) heat-induced conditions. It is imperative for the safety of your children, players, volunteers, & coaches that you know how to identify and treat the symptoms.

  • Make Hydration a goal (from AYSO.com)
  • Heat induced symptoms (from AYSO.org)
