MONTGOMERY – The 24rd annual AHSAA Summer Conference gets underway Wednesday – and for the first time it will be a virtual conference presentation for member school coaches and administrators July 15-17.
Jamie Lee, Director of the Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association (AHSADCA), said while he is disappointed the annual North-South All-Star competition and the face-to-face interaction among the more than 4,000 attendees usually attending will be missing, “I am glad we have the technology to be are able to provide the professional development for our membership virtually. I thank our AHSAA staff for the many hours they put in putting together the virtual conference.”

The virtual conference presentations will be available shown on the NFHS Network thanks in big part to the Central-Phenix City High School NFHS Network School Broadcast Program. Central’s broadcast director Tim Loreman and his student staff are producing the virtual conference. “I especially want to thank Tim Loreman and his student team for their efforts in producing the virtual conference for our member schools,” said Lee.

    The conference kicks off Wednesday at 10 a.m., with an important introductory training session concerning DragonFly, the AHSAA’s new required software. The session is designed for all administrators and coaches. Two more DragonFlysessions are scheduled at 10:30 a.m., and 1 p.m., Wednesday and two more sessions are set for Thursday at 9:20 a.m., and 11:05 a.m. GoFan will discuss the importance of digital ticketing in a session beginning at 10:20 a.m.
The final session Wednesday, “Opening School in Today’s World,” is being presented by James Clemens High School principal Brian Clayton and Loachapoka High School principal Albert Weeden.

    Thursday’s virtual conference schedule kicks off with the annual mandatory AHSAA Medical Advisory Board Update from 8 to 8:50 a.m. Dr. James Robinson, a renowned community health specialist and the University of Alabama football team physician from Tuscaloosa, will address administrators discussing best health practices in today’s climate.

Friday’s final day include the mandatory AHSAA Update – beginning at 8 a.m., with an update from Dr. Eric Mackey, Superintendent of the Alabama State Department of Education, and followed at 8:30 a.m., with an update from AHSAA Executive Director Steve Savarese and the AHSAA staff. The virtual conference will conclude at 10:45 a.m., conducted by Opelika High School principal Farrell Seymore and Crenshaw County Schools Superintendent Dodd Hawthorne discussing “Best Practices for Fall Contests in Today’s World.”

REGISTRATION: To join the conference, you will need to register and pay for the event through your DragonFly account.

How to Deal with Summer Heat

Heat Exhaustion or Heat Stroke infographic #EncoreRehab

Summer time in the South means lots of heat and humidity! Here are some tips for dealing with the summer heat!

  1. Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids. Do not wait until you are thirsty to start hydrating. A sports drink can help replace lost salt and minerals from sweating.
  2. Stay indoors as much as possible and limit exposure to the sun.
  3. NEVER leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles. NEVER.
  4. Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing that covers as much skin as possible. Protect your face and head with a wide-brimmed hat.
  5. Avoid working outside during the hottest part of the day. Take frequent breaks.
  6. Pay attention to what you eat and drink. Eat less of salty foods and eat more fruits and vegetables. Also smaller, more frequent meals will help.
  7. Seek indoor, air-conditioned activities. If you do not have air conditioning, visit public places with air conditioning like the mall, the library, or restaurants.
  8. Stay tuned to the local forecast on the radio, television, or internet.
  9. Be sure to check on family and friends who do not have air conditioning and may live alone.
  10. Learn the signs of heat stroke and heat exhaustion. Heat-related deaths and illnesses are preventable, but it’s important to identify the warning signs and to react swiftly and appropriately when they arise.

We wish everyone a fun and safe summer!
