Florida bill would fund prep sports with pro ticket surcharge
Naples Daily News via Athletic Business
The Florida legislature will take up bills in each chamber that could put more money into the coffers of all high school athletic programs in the state. Bills filed in the House and Senate will seek to impose a surcharge of .25 cents for each ticket purchased to a professional sporting event in the state and that money would be segregated and distributed to high school sports programs. This would include all professional and minor league sports teams and events — including NASCAR and pro golf events.

Social media an issue for athletes, coaches
The York Daily Record
It started as a joke. Years ago, Anthony Morgan used a Twitter name that he knew would make his friends laugh. And that's how it stayed. That decision, however, seemed a lot more important during the college recruiting process. Morgan eventually went to McDaniel College to play, but one of the first things his college basketball coach said to him had to do with Twitter: Change your user name, and do it now.

MLB pitcher embracing growing trend of mental practices
CBS Sports
Minnesota Twins pitching prospect Trevor May is focused on his goals for the new season, but he is content to leave the stat-counting and award-seeking to others. While he was looking to improve his results and cares greatly about the process by which he achieves them, May's No. 1 goal this spring was one that would have been hard, if not impossible, to quantify. He wanted to be mentally focused for every single pitch.

California school board picks cork for athletic fields
The Press Democrat
The district board overseeing California's Analy and El Molino High Schools approved using a more expensive infill made of cork for planned synthetic fields at the schools, a victory for a group of parents who raised health concerns about turf made of recycled tires. With the vote, the schools may become the first in the nation to use cork as infill on fields where high school football is played, according to Jennie Bruneman, director of maintenance and operations for the West Sonoma Union High School District.

Mercy rule proposed for high school basketball in North Dakota
Forum News Service via The Bismarck Tribune
Jay Townsend, the school superintendent at Fairmount in North Dakota's southeastern corner, witnessed his school's boys basketball players, who form a co-op with Minnesota's Campbell-Tintah, go 0-20 this past season. And the record wasn't the worst of it; the average score was 75-33. As a result of this season and previous others for the school district with only 28 students in its top four grades, he's touting a mercy rule for North Dakota high school basketball, just as it exists in state-sanctioned sports such as football, hockey, baseball and softball.

How young is too young to run?
U.S. News & World Report
While there's no question that physical activity in youth is critical for physical and mental health, as well as for developing lifelong healthy habits, how exercise is presented and pursued matters, says Skye Donovan, a physical therapist and associate professor of physical therapy at Marymount University, who researches childhood obesity.

Awareness, treatment of female concussions lagging
Stamford Advocate
Unless you or a loved one has suffered one, a concussion is something of a black hole. Diagnosis and treatments vary. For years, research focused on the male medical model.
