Dear Parents,

I wanted to make you aware of an excellent opportunity that’s been made available to our athletes at Jackson High School. We are again partnering with mCORE™ — Mobile Cardiac Overview and Risk Evaluation — to screen our athletes for the cardiac conditions and abnormalities which may put them at risk of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).  SCA Is The Number One Killer of Young Athletes.  SCA is the result of unsuspecting cardiological disease or abnormalities which cause the heart to stop without warning or symptoms. We hear about several student-athletes each year that are lost to this devastating tragedy, many of which could have been prevented with a simple examination like this.  SPACE IS LIMITED AND EXPECTED TO FILL QUICKLY.

Please watch the 4-minute video for more on SCA and mCORE.

Read a letter by Pam Bitsko, the mother of the Kent State football player who recently died from sudden cardiac arrest during his sleep.

This event is specifically for HIGH SCHOOL athletes

The JYBA is proud to share with you the following flyers for local college partner's summer basketball camps and clinics.  We are fortunate to have very successful Division 2 and Division 3 college basketball programs within the area from which to learn the skills necessary for success. 

Please take an opportunity to review the camps and clinics in this article.  We would strongly recommend any of these as another important program in the basketball development of your son. 

If you have any questions regarding these camps please email us, many of our own sons have participated in these camps and clinics.
