Organization Purpose Statement

The Ohio Wolfpack Organization was established in the fall of 1999, by Jamie Wolff, who wanted to provide girls the opportunity to play fast pitch softball at a more competitive level. As we measure the success of our Organization, we must remember that wins and losses are a very important aspect of success. However , they are not the only aspect of success. We strive to provide a positive and quality experience for our student/athletes on and off the field. We are committed to success in the classroom, on the playing field, and the development of life skills.

An Ohio Wolfpack Softball player is first of all, determined. She knows she has the opportunity to experience being a part of a team that is “Committed to Excellence” . She accepts what it means to be a Student/Athlete. She is disciplined and is a hard worker. She is proud of her team. She must always be “Striving for Excellence”.

An Ohio Wolfpack Softball player is more concerned with her TEAM than herself. She realizes that she is on the team for a reason that reason is, to play softball at a high level. She appreciates past learning experiences and looks to embrace what the future may hold. She understands that she will get a sense of ownership and satisfaction by laying it all on the line and maintaining a positive attitude. When competing against others she focuses on the maturity of her game and how she can help the TEAM in any way she can. She knows if there is no competition there is no game. She knows if she has that drive and determination in softball, she will have it in the real world too. She knows softball will prepare her for life because it gives her the ability to set goals and surpass them. 

An Ohio Wolfpack Softball player understands that without team unity and enthusiasm, “Excellence” cannot be achieved. She understands the importance of being coachable; expecting her coaches’ encouragement while trusting their criticism. She is optimistic in the face of adversity; has passion, desire and dedication. She never allows doubt to stand in the way of her goals. She is always, “In the Zone”, never involving herself with things outside of HER control.

An Ohio Wolfpack Softball player plays her role as a teammate, not as an individual. She understands that what she becomes is dependent, on never being satisfied. She competes to win on the field and in the classroom. She knows that in order to succeed she must first overcome her personal failures. In the end, knowing she must push her limits, combined with her God given talents and guidance from anyone who has influenced her game, there will never be any regrets.

The Ohio Wolfpack Organization teaches the skills of softball with an eye toward making the game FUN , for each of our student/athletes. We strive to teach the “game” of softball with a positive attitude and use positive reinforcement to allow the student/athletes to become successful. In addition to teaching softball skills, The Ohio Wolfpack Organization emphasizes the concepts of good sportsmanship, fair play and winning and losing with PRIDE .

The Ohio Wolfpack Organization was designed to provide our student/athletes with the opportunity to learn these skills and to apply them for the rest of their lives. While being a great softball player is a tremendous short-term goal, being a great person, is the long-term goal, which we want all of our student/athletes to become!

First and Foremost, The Ohio Wolfpack is “Committed to Excellence”

Child Abuse Policy

Whether and when to report abuse under federal and/or state law is a legal question, which turns on several factors. Below is a summary of information available from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) (www.childwelfare.gov), as well as links to state definitions, statutes, and resources. Note, however, that States frequently amend their laws.

Reporting laws reflect our community’s paramount obligation to protect children from
maltreatment. While the requirements listed below are the legal minimums, we encourage you to take immediate action if you believe the health or welfare of a child is at stake. If you have any questions concerning reporting, you should also speak with your legal team immediately.

Federal Law

Federal legislation – the Federal Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) (42 U.S.C.A. § 5106g), as amended by the CAPTA Reauthorization Act of 2010 – sets minimum standards for defining child abuse and neglect for those States that accept federal funding. Under federal law, the minimum acts or behaviors constituting child abuse and neglect by parents and other caregivers are:

  •   “Any recent act or failure to act on the part of a parent or caretaker which results in death, serious physical or emotional harm, sexual abuse or exploitation”; or

  •   “An act or failure to act which presents an imminent risk of serious harm.” State Law

    As noted, whether to report child abuse and neglect under state law turns on several factors:

  •   What is “child abuse and neglect”?
    Although federal legislation sets minimum standards for defining child abuse and neglect, the definitions of child abuse and neglect vary by State. It is thus critical that you work with your attorney to determine (1) what law governs your reporting obligations; and (2) what the law was when the alleged child maltreatment occurred.

  •   Who is required to report?
    Many States identify professionals who are required to report child maltreatment (“mandatory reporters”) – e.g., social workers and teachers. Note, however, that who constitutes a mandatory reporter varies by state. In addition, several states also require any person who suspects child abuse or neglect to report, regardless of profession.

  •   Who is permitted to report?
    Your legal obligations may vary with your ethical obligations. For those states that do not require all persons to report suspected abuse or neglect, any person is permitted to report (“permissive reporters”). Be aware that certain professions also have their own professional codes of conduct that they must follow and that may affect how and when an individual may report.

 

  •   What is the standard for reporting?
    The circumstances under which a mandatory reporter is required to report vary by State. The DHHS summarizes two typical reporting standards, for both mandatory and permissive reporters: (1) “the reporter, in his or her official capacity, suspects or has reasons to believe that a child has been abused or neglected”; and (2) the reporter has knowledge of, or observes a child being subjected to, conditions that would reasonably result in harm to the child.” Again, work with your attorney to determine when you are required to or should make a report to a state agency.

  •   Is the communication privileged?
    Some States identify when a communication is privileged, i.e., there is a right to maintain a confidential communication between a professional and their client or patient. However, this privilege is greatly restricted for mandatory reporters. For instance, States commonly provide that the physician-patient privilege is superseded by the requirement to report child abuse.

  •   Who should reports be made to? Contact your local child protective services office or law enforcement agency so professionals can assess the situation. Many States also have a toll- free number to call to report suspected child abuse or neglect. To find out where to call, visit: http://www.childwelfare.gov/pubs/reslist/rl_dsp.cfm?rs_id=5&rate_chno=W-00082. Finally, check your organization’s internal reporting requirements.

  •   Will the report be anonymous?
    Most States permit anonymous reports.

  •   Will the reporter’s identity be disclosed?
    If a reporter does disclose his/her identity, many states protect the identity of the reporter from disclosure to the alleged perpetrator. In some cases, however, a reporter’s identity may be released (i.e., by court order or by waiver and/or consent).

    We also encourage the community to read more about abuse and neglect, familiarize themselves with the resources available to report abuse, and learn about the counseling and referral services that are available.

Concussion Information

THE FACTS

  •   A concussion is a brain injury.

  •   All concussions are serious.

  •   Most concussions occur without loss of consciousness.

  •   Concussions can occur in any sport or recreation activity.

  •   Recognition and proper response to concussions when they first occur can help prevent

    further injury or even death.

    A bump, blow, or jolt to the head can cause a concussion, a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Concussions can also occur from a blow to the body that causes the head to move rapidly back and forth. Even a “ding,” “getting your bell rung,” or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious.

    RECOGNIZING A POSSIBLE CONCUSSION

    To help recognize a concussion, you should watch for and ask others to report the following two things among your athletes:

1. A forceful bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body that results in rapid movement of the head.

‐‐and‐‐

2. Any change in the athlete’s behavior, thinking, or physical functioning.

Athletes who experience one or more of the signs and symptoms listed below after a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body should be kept out of play the day of the injury and until a health care professional, experienced in evaluating for concussions, says they are symptom‐free and it’s OK to return to play. 

SIGNS OBSERVED BY COACHING STAFF

Appears dazed or stunned
Is confused about assignment or position Forgets an instruction
Is unsure of game, score, or opponent
Moves clumsily
Answers questions slowly
Loses consciousness (even briefly)
Shows mood, behavior, or personality changes Can’t recall events prior to hit or fall
Can’t recall events after hit or fall 

SYMPTOMS REPORTED BY ATHLETE

Headache or “pressure” in head Nausea or vomiting
Balance problems or dizziness Double or blurry vision Sensitivity to light

Sensitivity to noise
Feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy, or groggy Concentration or memory problems Confusion
Just not “feeling right” or is “feeling down” 

DANGER SIGNS

In rare cases, a dangerous blood clot may form on the brain in a person with a concussion and crowd the brain against the skull. An athlete should receive immediate medical attention if after a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body s/he exhibits any of the following danger signs:

  •   One pupil larger than the other

  •   Is drowsy or cannot be awakened

  •   A headache that not only does not diminish, but gets worse

  •   Weakness, numbness, or decreased coordination

  •   Repeated vomiting or nausea

  •   Slurred speech

  •   Convulsions or seizures

  •   Cannot recognize people or places

  •   Becomes increasingly confused, restless, or agitated

  •   Has unusual behavior

  •   Loses consciousness (a brief loss of consciousness should be taken seriously and the

    student should be carefully monitored).

    WHEN A CONCUSSION IS SUSPECTED

    If you suspect that an athlete has a concussion, implement your four‐step action plan:

  1. Remove the athlete from play. Look for signs and symptoms of a concussion if your athlete has experienced a bump or blow to the head or body. When in doubt, sit them out.

  2. Ensure that the athlete is evaluated by a health care professional experienced in evaluating for concussion. Do not try to judge the severity of the injury yourself. Health care professionals have a number of methods that they can use to assess the severity of concussions. As a coach, recording the following information can help health care professionals in assessing the athlete after the injury: 

  3.   Cause of the injury and force of the hit or blow to the head or body

  4.   Any loss of consciousness (passed out/knocked out) and if so, for how long

  5.   Any memory loss immediately following the injury

  6.   Any seizures immediately following the injury

  7.   Number of previous concussions (if any)

  8. Inform the athlete’s parents or guardians about the possible concussion and give them CDC’s fact sheet on concussions. This fact sheet can help parents monitor the athlete for signs or symptoms that appear or get worse once the athlete is at home or returns to school.

  9. Keep the athlete out of play the day of the injury and until a health care professional, experienced in evaluating for concussions, says s/he is symptom‐free and it’s OK to return to play. A repeat concussion that occurs before the brain recovers from the first—usually within a short period of time (hours, days, or weeks)—can slow recovery or increase the likelihood of having long‐term problems. In rare cases, repeat concussions can result in edema (brain swelling), permanent brain damage, and even death.

  10. Take a FREE online training on concussions or get more information and educational resources on concussions, go to: www.cdc.gov/Concussion

  11. The above information was provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. Also, please note that concussion awareness disclosures, protocols and requirements may be mandated by state or local law. Consult applicable laws for legal requirements.
