    FHS Athlete Safety Plans

    2017 Fhs Softball Safety Plan: 3:35-Before practice/games starts we always meet in the gym foyer to take roll and get gear. I will lock the locker room door after all of my girls are upstairs and accounted for. The teams will walk over to Lents Park together. After practices I will unlock the locker room door and supervise the girls’ locker room until all of my girls are gone. Between our coaching staff, one coach will always stay on the grounds until the last player is picked up. If a player is going to walk/bike or take the bus home, the coach needs to have a letter from a parent/guardian on file. Practices will end at 5:30 and rides need to arrive by 5:35 to pick up players. Varsity also practices in the mornings from 6:00-7:30am. Players are not to arrive before 5:50am. I will also unlock/lock and supervise the locker rooms during that time. We don’t have late practices so there will be no hanging around on school grounds waiting for practice to begin. If my players have early dismissal they can go to study hall and study or go to the library with their early dismissal cards. In the event of a lighting strike, the team will go and stand under the concession stand (which is covered) and wait 30 mins to return.

    FHS Spring Track Safety Plan: First our track team safety plan is having Tom McCarthy M-TH supervise boys’ locker room and Stephanie Lyda (training room) since I have no female coach on staff to supervise the girls. Jacob Michaels T&Th, Rob Jamieson M&W, John Lasley after jumpers are done, Ken Weinburg after PV is done and myself -F will supervise after practice locker rooms. Both Nick McCarthy M-TH and Gary Sletmoe -F will assist Tom with before practice supervision. All event coaches will make sure their event areas are cleaned up and equipment is put away. I will close up all equipment storage areas under the bleachers and lock them up. We will have no practice on the 5 Fridays we are away at Invites. FHS T&F Coach Jim Hennessy

    Safety Plan For Franklin Womens Golf:

    • Practice transportation: On days that practice takes place at Eastmoreland GC, Coach (Mike Niece) will make sure that all team members know that they will provide their own form of transportation to the course, whether that be their own car, public transportation, or parents. Once practice ends, coach is to make sure that all team members have a safe route home.
    • Match transportation: On match days, if no van is available, Coach will arrange for the team members to take cabs to the golf course. Transportation home will either be through cabs, or through the player parents.
    • Vans: In the event that a van is available for practices or matches, Coach is to make sure that all team members are properly buckled, and know the correct exit procedure in the case of an emergency exit.
    • Practice safety: When practice is taking place at the golf course, team members will always be supervised by Coach Niece or by Assistant Coach Tess Miller at all times. If team members are broken into groups for practice purposes, one coach will be with each group. Whether practice is at the golf course, or in the wrestling room, it has been, and will always be stressed, that team members will stand a safe distance away from other team members as they swing the golf club. This also applies to when the team is playing golf on the golf course – never stand in front of the player who is hitting the ball.
    • Coach Niece will always have the team member’s participation cards in his possession at all team activities, in order to be sure that each individual team members medical instructions are properly followed.
    • Team members and parents all have the Coach’s contact information: Mike Niece, 503-869-2166, Mike.niece2@gmail.com; Tess Miller, 541-921-0147, Tess.miller22@gmail.com

    Safety Plan – Men’s and Women’s Tennis:
