TIP OF THE WEEK:

Motorcades / Victory Laps

Fortunately, our athletes and teams are very competitive and often win tournaments and league championships. The following are some guidelines from the Kahnawake Child Safety Network to keep our youth safe during impromptu motorcade parades aka Victory Laps:

1)  Youth should not be standing in the backs of flatbed or pickup trucks

2)  Youth should not be sitting on structures or racks mounted on vehicles

3)  Youth should never be seated on the hood, trunk, outside of or clinging to a vehicle

4)  Drivers must have valid licenses and drive at a reasonable speed

Common sense is not so common anymore, following these rules will help keep our youth safe.
