Coaches from high schools on Maui will huddle in Kahului on Saturday for a clinic that will tackle hot topics in the sporting world.  Discussion and presentations at the first-ever 2011 HMSA Kaimana Coaches Clinic on Maui will include student drug use, concussions, and the dynamics of coaches and officials.

The clinic is being offered as part of the HMSA Kaimana Awards & Scholarship Program, which recognizes and rewards excellence in athletics, academics, sportsmanship, and community service. Each year, the program supports coaches’ education, focusing on student health, prevention and safety.

Gary Shimabukuro from Laulima Hawai’i will host presentations on the Prescription Drug Epidemic and Current Drug Trends; Francis Kau from the Maui Association of Hawaii Basketball Officials will host a presentation entitled Let’s Take a Timeout Coaches and Officials!; Robert Rivera, the first Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for Maui County will discuss Sexual Harassment; and Chris Pagdilao from Maui High School will host a presentation entitled Concussions: What a Coach Should Know.

More than 50 participants are expected to attend.   The clinic runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Maui High School.
