WEATHER RELATED RINK CLOSING

The winter season and thus winter weather is upon us.  Travel can become difficult at times and families should take that into consideration when making decisions.  As a reminder Sports Plus will only close if Hamilton County declares a Level 3 snow emergency but attending practices/games during inclement weather is a family decision.  If you are unable to attend, please be sure to let your coach know as soon as possible.

Lindsay’s Law: Sudden Cardiac Arrest in Youth Athletes

What is Sudden Cardiac Arrest?

A Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating, cutting off blood flow to the brain and other vital organs.  Sudden cardiac arrest is fatal if not treated immediately, most often by a defibrillator.

Who is Lindsay?

Senate Bill 252 is named for national heart health advocate and former Miss Ohio Lindsay Davis who suffers from a heart condition and has since dedicated her career to raising awareness of this potentially fatal condition.

"Sudden cardiac arrest is the number one killer of student athletes," said Davis. "At any moment I could have died because coaches and teachers had no idea this was even a possibility for someone who looked as healthy as I did at that age."

Lindsay’s Law

Lindsay’s Law, Ohio Revised Code 3313.53103707.58 and 3707.59 went into effect in 2017.

In accordance with this law, the Ohio Department of Health, the Ohio Department of Education, the Ohio High School Athletic Association, the Ohio Chapter of the American College of Cardiology and other stakeholders jointly developed guidelines and other relevant materials to inform and educate students and youth athletes participating in or desiring to participate in an athletic activity, their parents, and their coaches about the nature and warning signs of sudden cardiac arrest.

The following resources were developed to implement Lindsay’s Law:

For parents/guardians and youth athletes:

For coaches:

  • If you are a coach for an interscholastic sport and are licensed by the Ohio Department of Education, please visit their website for information about their training requirements around Lindsay’s Law.
  • If you are a coach in a community program, please use the following resources:

SWORDS KROGER COMMUNITY REWARDS PROGRAM

 The Kroger Co. has renewed their Community Rewards program for the 2016-17 year.  ALL CURRENT PARTICIPANTS must re-enroll to continue earning community rewards.  To re-enroll log into your Kroger account and on the Account Summary page under "Community Rewards" at the bottom you have the option to re-enroll.  Please be sure your organization is listed as Queen City Hockey Association and the NPO number is 81074 as there are several Queen City Hockey Association listings.  Your re-enrollment period will begin May 1 even if you re-enroll now.  This re-enrollment does not have an impact on your 2015-16 account.

If you have not participated in the past but would like to for the 2016-17 season details on the program and how to enroll are listed below.

 

PROGRAM OVERVIEW:
 
The Cincinnati Swords have enrolled in the Kroger Community Rewards program for the upcoming year and are pleased to offer ALL members the opportunity to participate.  You must register your Kroger Plus Card Number online and select Queen City Hockey Association (NPO Number 81074) as your participating organization (see detailed instructions below).  Once you are registered, you only need to use your Kroger Plus card and you will accumulate rewards.  Quarterly, Kroger will distribute $1,000,000 to all participating organizations based on their percentage of spending.  Our allocation of the Kroger funds is outlined below.
 
We hope that all Swords families will participate to help offset their hockey costs.  If you have any questions, please email Melanie Luft at or call 513-407-0222.  You must register by May 1 to maximize your benefits.  You must register with the NPO number 81074; old CAHA or Queen City team participation numbers are void.
 
DISTRIBUTION OF FUNDS:
 
The Kroger Co. will distribute funds on a quarterly basis with statements and donations being sent on or before September 15, December 15, March 15 and June 15. 
 
Families will need to provide an email copy of Kroger funds earned each quarter and funds will be applied directly to a skater's program.  Funds can be used for any Swords or Sabres online registration.  Your friends and family may also sign up on your behalf but will need to provide the necessary information to us each quarter for you to receive credit.

 If a skater’s family decides to no longer participate with Queen City Hockey Association  and has outstanding funds, all funds will be allocated to the general fund as we are not allowed to distribution funds to individuals and all funds must be used for our organization’s purpose which is youth hockey.  Funds can be held for up to four cycles.  After that, any unused funds will be transferred to the general fund.
