Neil Krizek, LMVSC Player Director created an educational guide on "Lightning"
Each year in the United States, more than 400 people are struck by lightning. On average,about 70 people are killed and many others suffer permanent neurological disabilities. Most of these tragedies can be avoided if proper precautions are taken. When thunderstorms threaten, coaches and sports officials must not let the desire to start or complete an athletic activity hinder their judgment when the safety of participants and spectators is in jeopardy.
