Lightning Safety

According to many safety organizations, including the National Lightning Safety Institute, the 30/30 rule should be applied when dealing with lightning. It simply says that if the time between the visual sighting of a lightning strike and the sound of thunder is less than 30 seconds, cover needs to be found immediately. The second “30” refers to the amount of time (in minutes) that you must wait until after the last thunder is heard before you return outside.
Statistics for lightning injuries and deaths are shocking. According to US Youth Soccer, over 400 children are struck by lightning each year, with nearly 80 deaths occurring and many more with permanent disabilities. The National Lightning Safety Institute reports that lightning deaths rate #2 in weather related deaths each year behind floods, ahead of tornados and hurricanes. Many many more sustain serious permanent neurological injuries.
Coaches, parents, players and all associated youth sports need to become informed about the dangers of lightning, what to do when it occurs, how to protect themselves, and what to do in an emergency when someone is struck by lightning.

Max Shacknai was the inspiration for MaxInMotion®. Max was a young talented athlete who tragically lost his life in July 2011.  The first word out of Max's mouth as a baby was "ball."  His love of sports - soccer in particular - was known throughout the youth sports community. Inspired by his energy, spirit and commitment, MaxInMotion® is a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to providing young athletes an opportunity to compete at both the recreational and competitive levels in major youth sports.

 

The Foundation provides financial support directly to youth sports organizations throughout the state of Arizona, to help underwrite inclusion in sports programs of financially challenged boys and girls who would not otherwise be able to participate. The Foundation embraces the philosophy that youth sports contribute dramatically to character development and personal fitness, and that team participation helps establish values of community, interdependency and collective responsibility.

Max in Motion continues to help TVSC families in need.
