Long time Clinton High School Principal Ron Connor has organized and event similar to a seminar he hosted at Clinton High School two years ago.
With increased risk to athletes in today's sports, Connor took the initiative a few years ago to host a special session for athletic trainers, coaches and even parents to learn more about the risks of injuries in sports today. Now he's back at it, this time in Bloomington.
Connor helped the Regional Office of Education host a similar seminar last summer and geared it towards concussions since it was close to football season and now hopes to continue the conversation as trainers from ISU and other places will be on hand to talk about the importance of proper training.
Connor says the seminar is open to any coach, athletic trainer and even parent who wants to learn more about preventing sports injuries and proper ways for their young athletes to train.
Things kick off Wednesday evening at 5 pm at the McLean County Health Department and should last until about 8:30 pm. For more information and to register, contact the McLean County Health Department at 309-888-5450.
