I went to one field where they used a DVD to do a safety and orientation briefing before play. There dvd was something they produced themselves. It just ran over things like, Keep your Goggles on, Put your barrel socks on, don't shoot the refs, when you get hit hold your gun up, say I'm hit and walk off the field, etc.
Ran about 10 minutes.
I've seen one on line somewhere as well that someone is selling. Just wondering, any of you guys using a DVD Briefing? Did you buy a pre made one? Make it yourself??
Both the indoor fields here in town use/used a video briefing. I think it's a good idea in that it's something you can show in court, should someone sue you for an injury or something. On the flip side, the video could be used against you to show something you didn't mention.
Personally, I like the idea. This way you know that the safety briefing goes over everything you want it to, every time. I'd set it up so that waivers are signed after the briefing and include a checkbox that they viewed the safety briefing.
I planned on doing that... a waiver check box. Just didn't know if anyone had used the "canned" ones - or if they made up their own. Didn't know if the pre-made ones where any good. I've seen them as cheap as 10 bucks or so, so I guess it won't cost much to find out!
a video is good because saying the same things like that will get dull and boring, people are lazy so when doing something they dont really like doing they might leave something out, not on purpos mind you. people pay more attention to a movie then some guy ramboling on.

Think of me what you will, I don't care.
One field I go to makes you sign a waiver, then there is a verbal briefing. But I just realized the indoor place I go to doesn't have a briefing at all. Not even a waiver. You just write your name down on a list.
