Mike Fromfield, Wallingtonâ€™s boys soccer head coach
Fromfield Leads Wallington to Boys Soccer Powerhouse By Edward Kensik WALLINGTON â€” Itâ€™s hard to believe that only 14 years ago that Wallington High School did not have a boys soccer team. The Bergen County town that is filled with soccer-loving fans had not fielded a varsity soccer team until 1999 when Pete Ferra and Mike Fromfield helped lead Wallington High School finally to the pitch. For the first two years Ferra led the Panthers on the sidelines and also got Wallington into the state playoffs in its first year, 1999. At that time, you needed at least a .500 record to qualify for the state tournament. Two years later, 2001, Fromfield took over the reins and has not looked back. In his first year as head coach, the Panthers accumulated a 164 record and made it to the Group 1 North 1 state sectional final. Before coming to Wallington, he coached at Clifton High School and St. Peters Prep where he played soccer for the Marauders. Fromfield also played a year of soccer at Fordham University. Behind the work of Fromfield and his staff, Wallington could easily be considered one of the top 10 powerhouse boys soccer programs in Bergen NJ Sports Fitness & Wellness Telephone: (973) 605-1213 Fax: (973) 605-1883 email@example.com 173 Morris Street, 2nd Floor Morristown, NJ 07960 page 4
County. After battling for a few years and gaining some success with a couple of league titles, the Wallington program finally hit pay dirt when they won their first sectional title, Group 1 North 1, in 2009. The Panthers would win another state sectional title in 2010. But in 2010 the state sectional championship was not the only hardware they brought back to Wallington, the Panthers would go on to win the Group 1 title with a 1-0 victory over South River High School down at The College of New Jersey. â€œIt was really special team to be a part of and a talented team,â€? said Fromfield. Going from just talk of a soccer team to a Group state title, the bar is set high and not winning a state sectional title is considered a disappointment. Wallington lost to Waldwick in the Group 1 North 1 state sectional championship last season. Despite the loss the Panthers had another big year and finished with a 19-4 record. And the Panthers have a goal firmly in place this season, win a sectional title. â€œI think that game is allowing them to be self-motivated,â€? said Fromfield about his 2012 team remembering the loss to Waldwick. â€œBut if they let down, we will re-
mind them about that game.â€? Wallington started the 2012 season on a high note with a 3-0 victory over neighborhood rival Becton on Sept. 7. The Panthers started slowly,
but scored three goals in the overtime period to beat the Wildcats. This seasonâ€™s edition of Wallington is young but talented with only four seniors,

Like some of the other bluecollar communities in Bergen County, the students just donâ€™t attend classes. They work after school and also help around the home that also includes baby sitting with many families having two parents working.
With a small school, one of the smallest in New Jersey, Fromfield understands the predicaments for his players so is able to work it out with the players if they have family obligations. â€œOur students have to grow up very fast,â€? said Fromfield about his student/athletes jobs off the field. â€œFor us families come first, thatâ€™s part of it.â€? In terms of parents, From-
field raves about the parents of his players in the days when some adults have a tendency to be obtrusive in the workings of a school team. â€œIn Wallington the parents are very supportive and very respectable about what we do,â€? said Fromfield. For Fromfield his key is communication and he and his coaching staff meet with his players constantly throughout
the season and one-on-one. â€œWe do a lot of one-on-one conference with players to let the kids know what goals we have set for them,â€? said Fromfield. â€œWe set a floor and a ceiling for them. We try to get feedback from them and meet with each one during the season. I think the fact that you have one-on-ones with each player that you can be specific.â€?

FALL SPORTS ALERT: What Parents, Players and Coaches Need to Know Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation Offers Injury Prevention Guidelines Contributed by Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation
As the fall season approaches, millions of student-athletes are preparing to take to the playing fields — and with that comes an increased risk of sports-related injuries. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than seven million students participate in high school sports annually and millions more are active on the elementary and middle school levels as well as in recreation leagues. High school athletes alone account for an estimated two million injuries, 500,000 doctor visits, and 30,000 hospitalizations with the highest injury rate among football players, followed by wrestlers and soccer players. In addition, more than 3.5 million children ages 14 years and younger receive medical treatment for sports-related injuries. “Sprains, muscle strains, bone or growth plate injuries, fractures, and overuse or repetitive motion injuries, as well as heat-related illnesses are the more typical injuries among children,” explained Neil N. Jasey, M.D., Director of Brain Injury Rehabilitation at Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation. “However, concussion, or mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), is increasingly one of the most common sports-related injuries. It is also one of the most difficult to diagnose — and one of the most serious because of the long-term cognitive and behavioral problems it can cause.” The CDC estimates that more than 300,000 children sustain a concussion while participating in sports-related activities each year, with similar numbers occurring during practice as in games. “It’s critically important that page 6
players, coaches and parents are aware of the symptoms, know when to seek medical attention and understand the need for appropriate return-toplay strategies,” said Dr. Jasey. “It’s also essential for players to undergo baseline cognitive testing as part of a pre-season physical.” Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation, one of only five federally designated Model Systems for the treatment and research of both traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries in the nation, offers the following sports guidelines for athletes, parents, and coaches: ACE THE EXAM. Every player should undergo a complete physical before engaging in any sports activities. In addition, a cognitive assessment, such as ImPACT testing, should be performed. This important tool, which is increasingly being used at both the professional and schoolage levels, helps to establish a baseline reference that can be helpful in diagnosing the extent of any brain injury. GET EQUIPPED. Athletes should wear appropriate footwear and sportspecific safety gear such as helmets, mouth guards and other protective equipment, all of which should be carefully fitted. Equipment should also be checked regularly to ensure that it is good condition and still fitting properly. BE PREPARED. Adequate training and conditioning is imperative before participating in any sport, to increase muscle strength, flexibility and aerobic fitness. Training, practice and pregame sessions should always include warm-up and cooldown exercises.
STAY HYDRATED. At all times, and particularly in hot, humid weather, athletes should drink plenty of fluids before, during and after training, practices and games. LISTEN UP. Coaches and trainers should enforce the rules, encourage safe play, understand the risks and be certified in first aid and CPR. PAY ATTENTION. Young athletes need to be aware of injury symptoms and encouraged to speak up about any pain, dizziness or other issues that they may experience. Similarly, parents, teachers and coaches should be vigilant – looking out for any signs of injury, including nausea/vomiting, dizziness, confusion, limping or anything out of the ordinary. SEEK MEDICAL HELP. Depending on the nature and severity of an injury, an athlete should seek immediate evaluation and/or treatment by a physician or other health care professional or be taken to the emergency room. An athlete suspected of sustaining a concussion (mTBI) should be removed from the game immediately and examined by a trained professional. Coaches, trainers, parents and players should be on the lookout for symptoms including dizziness, confusion, loss of balance, headache, nausea and/or vomiting and extreme fatigue. Other symptoms that may develop over time include irritability, difficulty with memory or concentration, impaired judgment, behavioral issues, personality changes and even depression, as well as changes
schoolwork and academic performance. Dr. Jasey also suggests the following concussion-specific strategies: • Any athlete who experiences loss of consciousness, even if just for a few seconds, should be taken to the emergency room immediately for a thorough neurological evaluation. Unlike physical injuries, such as a sprain or broken bone, the signs of brain injury may not present themselves immediately. • While there are no clearcut guidelines for return to play, rest is critical. It takes time for the brain to recover and the athlete should limit physical activities and continue to be observed for several days. Studies show that more than 40% of athletes who experience a concussion return to play too soon. Adequate “cognitive” rest is also important, so television, video games and certain schoolwork should be kept to a minimum. “Most young athletes recover from sports-related injuries, including concussion, providing they are recognized early and treated carefully,” added Dr. Jasey. “Immediate medical attention and appropriate treatment are necessary in order to avoid complications. While coaches, trainers, family members and players need to be aware of the risks and symptoms, athletes also need to be honest about any problems they are experiencing. Too often we see players disregard their symptoms, tough it out and return to play too soon in an attempt to keep their competitive edge, which can result in serious complications and lasting problems.” email@example.com

• Almost two-thirds (62%) of sports-related injuries occur during practice, rather than in games. • Contact or collision sports generally have higher rates of injury, but injuries from individual sports tend to be more severe. • Sports and recreational activities account for about 21% of all traumatic brain injuries among American children. • Girls have a higher incidence of concussion than boys, particularly in basketball and soccer. • Cycling accounts for nearly 25% of all sports-related brain injuries. Baseball and football each account for 14%, followed by basketball (11%), water sports (8%) and soccer (7%). • Once an athlete experiences a concussion, he or she is four to six times more likely to sustain a second concussion. • More than 40% of athletes who experience a concussion return to play too soon.
