Prompt Accident Reporting Procedures and What to report:

Report any incident involving a player, coach, manager, umpire, volunteer or spectator that leads to medical treatment and/or first aid to the Safety Officer.  This includes passive treatments such as the evaluation and diagnosis of the extent of the injury or periods of rest. 

When to report: Report any such incident to the Lower Cape May League Safety Officer within 48 hours of the occurrence.  The Safety Officer for 2020 is Kate Crecca (609-972-3302).

How to report: Person reporting the incident must complete an injury report form and submit to the Safety Officer.  Include the following information:

Name and telephone number of the individual(s) involved, including any injured party, the date, time, and location of the incident.  A detailed description of the incident.  A preliminary estimation of the extent of any injuries.  The name and telephone number of the person reporting the incident. 

Safety Officer’s responsibilities: To follow up with the injured party (or their parent/guardian) within 24 to 48 hours.  Verify the information received.  Obtain any other information deemed necessary.  Check on the status of the injured party.  Advise the injured party (or their parent/guardian) of Lower Cape May Little League’s insurance coverage and the provisions for submitting any claims in the event the injury required medical treatment (such as an emergency room or doctor’s visit).

If an injury is more than minor in nature, the Safety Officer will periodically follow up with the injured party to check on the status of their injury and whether any other assistance is needed, such as submission of insurance forms.  Once the individual is participating in the league again, an no other claims are expected, the Safety Officer shall consider the case “closed” and no further follow up is necessary. 


Coaches/Umpire Responsibilities:

Coaches and Umpires will walk the field before each use for a safety check.  Any items not immediately correctable will be reported to the safety officer.  Common sense will dictate if the field is playable.
