    Highschool Basketball Game

    As a basketball coach, you probably find the beginning of the season the most stressful.

The teams that can hit their midseason form quicker can get some much needed nonconference wins and, more importantly, superior confidence heading into conference play. Here are 3 tips to setting your team up for early season success:

    As we move deeper into fall and the days get shorter, it becomes increasingly important for outside workers to stay warm on the job. Whether you’re on a school safety squad, a construction worker or in law enforcement, working outside can be dangerous and uncomfortable as it gets colder. That means some early mornings and late nights, with less sunlight and dropping temperatures by the day. If you’re someone who has to work outside this fall and winter, make sure you’re prepared to work in these harsher conditions with Schoolmasters Safety’s must-have winter apparel items.

  • See And Be Seen with a Powerhat

    As the days continue to get shorter (and darker), it’s important to make sure you can see and be seen. While flashlights can help with your sight, they don’t really help others see you, and they also require the use of one of your hands. Reflective vests help others see you, but don’t help improve your sight in low light.

    When you need to both light your path and make sure others can see you, no product is better than the Powerhat Lighted Hat. It is made of ANSI rated material with trim that includes four LED lights attached to the brim. Two lights are angled downwards for up-close tasks and two are angled forward. This configuration provides up to forty-two feet of illumination in front of you, all while keeping your hands free for whatever task is at hand.

    Below are a couple of examples of situations where a Powerhat is the perfect tool you need!

  • Drills to Improve Your Route Running

    Football Player Running

    As a wide receiver, it doesn’t matter how fast or big you are if you can’t run crisp routes—if you run sloppy routes, you likely won’t get open enough for your quarterback to give you looks. While speed and strength are important traits for a receiver, it is just as important to have clean footwork and the ability to accelerate and decelerate on a dime. Here are a couple of drills you can practice to work on those often-overlooked aspects of your game.

  • Eye Protection in Schools

    According to the University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center, over half (55 percent) of eye injuries that occur in the United States happen to those who are under the age of twenty-five.

    These injuries can be especially prevalent in schools, where students are sometimes required to handle dangerous materials and equipment. Students are often reluctant to wear any eye protection, but it is a crucial safety element. The same Kellogg Eye Center study found that ninety percent of eye-related injuries are preventable, and wearing proper protection vastly helps decrease the chances of injury.

    Chemistry is probably the first class that comes to mind when talking about eye protection. Any time a student is experimenting with any dangerous chemicals, eye protection should be used at all times, even during the cleaning process. Chemicals can be unpredictable, so it is important to maintain safety requirements as long as students are around them.

    Football season is here and each and every football practice is vitally important in making sure your team is as prepared as possible. Policies are changing across the country that decrease the amount of time teams can spend practicing, making each practice as efficient as possible is more important than ever.
