Athletic Director

Click HERE for a message from Don

Name: Donald Beazizo

Educational Experience: I graduated from Concrete High School in 1986 and attended Eastern Washington University on a football scholarship. I received my Bachelors in Education with a Major in Physical Education and Minor in Biology. In 1999, I completed my Masters in Administration through Heritage University.

In October 2013, I received my National Certification for Athletic Administration through the NIAAA.

Teaching Experience: In 1993, I began my teaching and coaching career in Republic, Washington nestled in North Central Washington. I taught science, keyboard, pre-algebra, and world history at the middle school for the first three years. I transferred to the high school where I taught Earth Science, Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Anatomy/Physiology.

Coaching Experience: I coached football at Eastern Washington University as a student assistant from 1987 to 1993. From 1993, while at Republic, I was also the Head Football Coach for 7 years and the Head Softball Coach for 4 years. I was also the head softball coach at Concrete High School from 2006-2010.

Administrative Experience: In 2000, I was the Athletic Director at Sedro-Woolley School District. Then, in 2002 became the high school principal/athletic director at Concrete High School. I also took on the duties of the district’s athletic director in 2004.

Personal Information: I am happily married to the Concrete Elementary Kindergarten Teacher, Mrs. Lisa Beazizo. My son Ryan attended Concrete High School and graduated in 2006.

Hobbies: I play golf with all of my spare time. I am trying to drop my handicap to single digits. My wife and I travel in the summer to hot locations with a golf course. Listen to my video theme song by clicking on this link.

Purpose of High School Athletic Programs: The purpose of the Athletic Program in Burlington-Edison School District schools is to promote, direct, and conduct interscholastic athletics in such a manner as to further the aims of general education, promote friendly relations with other schools, to encourage participation by students, and to teach good sportsmanship.

Athletic Philosophy: The Athletic Department is an integral part of the total educational process of Burlington-Edison Schools. Being involved in athletics provides our students with opportunities to develop leadership skills and to learn the ideals of fair play and ethical behavior which are necessary for competition and cooperation in our society. It should also provide our students with the unique opportunities for self‐discipline, self‐sacrifice, and loyalty to the community, the school and the team.

Burlington-Edison Schools encourage all students to participate in athletics by offering a well‐rounded program of interscholastic athletics for both young men and women. Competition and cooperation are prized in our culture, and both are fostered by a well conducted athletic program under competent leadership. Athletics which are regulated to meet educational objectives can provide a major contribution to the physical and moral development of students.

Interscholastic athletics is a voluntary program. Students are not obligated to participate and participation is not required for graduation. Thus, competition in school athletics is a privilege and not a right.

Educational Philosophy: I believe that all students can learn, but some may learn at different rates. I believe that all students need to take an active part in the pursuit of their education. Parents need to be a part of their child’s education. Students need to be active in after-school programs to have a connection to school. Students need to take pride in their homework and make an honest effort.

B-E H.S. Student-Athlete Advisory

Student-Athlete Advisory

After reading an Article in “High School Athletic Director and Coaches” magazine, it was discovered that trends among the Top Colleges and Universities in the United States are providing “Leadership Academies” as an entry requirement for their freshmen student-athletes, as a way to develop leadership skills. The article also stated, “In the colleges and universities research, it was discovered, coaches sometimes take-for-granted that student-athletes know the skills to be a team-leader, in actuality, that is not always the case.” The idea behind the Academies, are to promote and develop the skills in young men and women in becoming strong team leaders whom coaches respect and teammates trust.

At Burlington-Edison High School, we decided to introduce/improve those skills at a younger age. Our Athletic Director is meeting with our Student-Athlete Advisory group once a month to discuss those skills necessary to be a team leader. The Student-Athlete Advisory group was formed by having representation for each sport at B-E H.S. While the colleges and universities require a ten week course, five days a week in August before their freshman year, we decided to modify the program to fit a high school student-athlete schedule.

For further information regarding the Student-Athlete Advisory, please contact Athletic Director. The following is a list of lessons that will be introduced to the student-athletes:

Booster Clubs


ARE YOU INTERESTED IN A BOOSTER CLUB?

The best way to join a booster club program, recognized by the Burlington-Edison School District, is to communicate with our head coaches or advisers of our programs. They can put you in touch with the booster club officers for the programs, when they meet, and how to get signed up.
The general purpose of a booster club is to assist in financing the legitimate extra-curricular activities of the student body in order to augment, but no conflict with, the educational programs provided by the Burlington-Edison School District. The B-ESD realizes there are many enthusiastic and caring parents who are willing to help but may not know all the implications of their involvement. The B-ESD wants to make sure parents are protected, and the interactions are positive when boosters are working with our programs.
By Law, Booster Clubs have specific requirements in order to function as a booster club:
  •  Current Organizational By-Laws for your group
  •  Develop a Mission and Vision Statement
  •  Business License (If retail sales are held)
  •  Parent Organizational rules (if any)
  •  Current list of officers provided to the buildings administration
  •  IRS Tax Identification Number (EIN)
  •  Washington State UBI #
  •  Certificate of Insurance
  •  Inventory of equipment (that is property of the booster club), not required if items are donated to the school.
  •  Recent copies of income tax reports
  •  Annual renewal of Secretary of State Registration
  •  List of Bank Accounts
  •  Current list of bank authorized signers (usually President and Treasurer; requires two signatures)
  •  Health Cards (if food is sold)
  •  Articles of Incorporation with Secretary of State stamp
  •  IRS Tax exempt request letter and/or Tax determination letter
  •  Any other agreements set forth with the school buildings administration
  •  It is the expectation with every booster club group associated with the Burlington-Edison School District groups and/or programs that our head coaches/advisers are highly involved in the decision making process. The Booster Club mission and vision statements, as well as, the booster by-laws should reflect this requirement.
  •  Also, included in the by-laws should reflect that any group that disbands or no longer will be a booster club, that all monies in accounts will be transferred and donated to the groups Associated School Body Account.
SCHOOL GUIDELINES:

It is important, at a minimum, for the booster club officers and its members have an understanding of the school guidelines to avoid booster clubs acting as an ASB group.

  • Money raised during the school day, on school property, using school personnel, or school materials is public money.
  • Public money, generated by the students or in the name of students, may be used only for Cultural, Athletic, Recreational, or Social purposes.
  • ASB funds are restricted Public Money and cannot be used for curricular purposes.
  • Co-Curricular is not a legal term. Only curricular and extra-curricular are defined by law.
  • Public Money cannot be given away for private use. (Example: Booster Club members getting into games for free)
  • Students and staff must collaborate on the generation of public money. (ASB Meetings)
  • Schools must have a system to monitor and protect the use of public money. (Coaches attending booster meetings)
IS IT A BOOSTER CLUB ACTIVITY OR AN ASB ACTIVITY?

What turns a parent group fundraiser into an ASB activity?

  • The cash receipts are given to the school ASB secretary and/or stored in the school safe. Athletic Office cannot collect funds for booster clubs.
  • The students handle the cash receipting reconciliation process.
  • The inventory is purchased by the ASB…Student Officer signs a purchase order.
  • The school district holds and inventories the goods for sale.
  • A majority of the work is performed by the students. Work must be done by the parents.
  • The parent group uses the school name (without adding “boosters”).
  • District facilities use not following per district policy. School district personnel are involved during staff time.
  • Event workers wearing official school apparel.

The Advantages of being a Multi- Sport Athlete

The Role of Parents in Athletics

It is evident that all parents want the best for their student-athlete. It is natural for parents to stand up and support their student-athlete when times are great and when times are not so good. Sometimes parents are not sure how to handle certain situations when they arise at home. Sometimes parents overreact to situations when it doesn't go the way their student-athletes think it should go and that can cause dissension in the family. Here are a few resources to help parents deal with certain situations when it comes to your student-athlete and how to be proactive with your student-athlete entering into the world of athletics.

Value of participating in athletics

16 Reasons Athletes Are Successful in Life
Playing sports can and should be about more than just having fun. Through sports, you can learn amazing life lessons and develop valuable personal traits that will translate to success throughout your life, both personally and professionally. Some of the best athletes and coaches of all time have uttered powerful words on the formative powers of sports. Here’s a breakdown of 16 ways some of them have noted how playing sports make people more successful in life.
"If you can’t outplay them, outwork them.” -Ben Hogan

Every athlete has come across other players with more natural talent. And most athletes have personally experienced how hard work allowed them to catch up and even surpass a more naturally gifted athlete who didn’t put forth the same effort. Chalk up that lesson as something you should live by for the rest of your days.

"Sometimes a player’s greatest challenge is coming to grips with his role on the team.” – Scottie Pippen

Every enterprise has leaders and role players. Both are vital to the ultimate success of the organization. But some are unwilling to put forward their best efforts if they’re not the one taking the “game-winning shot.” Athletes learn to play hard even when the play doesn’t call for them to be the star. Everyone needs to execute his or her own assignment so the play works and the team (or business) wins.

“It is what we learn after we think we know it all, that counts.” – John Wooden

Athletes come from a culture of teaching and learning and of constant constructive criticism from their coaches, team captains and teammates to help them learn more and play better. That experience sets athletes up to be much more receptive to feedback from managers and executives in the business and professional world, enabling them to continually improve and advance their careers.

“It’s what you get from games you lose that is extremely important.” —Pat Riley

Nobody likes to lose, but nobody goes through life undefeated. Losses in sports teach athletes not only how to deal with the pain of a loss, but also how to use the experience to prevent losing in the same way moving forward.

Show me a good loser, and I’ll show you a loser.” – Vince Lombardi

A desire to win and a disdain for losing is what fuels the truly great athletes to dig deep during games and punish themselves in the off-season to be more successful the following season. That same competitive drive and desire to win helps athletes in the professional world find ways to succeed at whatever task their job requires.

“It is better to look ahead and prepare than to look back and regret.” —Jackie Joyner-Kersee

Hard work today does not always lead to a reward tomorrow. In fact, many times, you must work hard for weeks and months, or even years, without seeing the benefits. Athletes learn this sooner than most, because they put in hours of hard work before the season starts, knowing that their preparation in the off-season will not pay dividends until much later.

“Set your goals high, and don’t stop ’till you get there.” – Bo Jackson

Sports are the ultimate tool for teaching someone how to set a goal, work tirelessly until it’s achieved and then set a new, more challenging goal. That’s a nice trait to have as you work to improve yourself year to year both personally and professionally.

“Amateurs do things ’till they get it right. Pros do it ’till they can’t get it wrong.” —Steven Jackson

Not much more to say here. Athletes are perfectionists. And so are successful people.

“A team will always appreciate a great individual if he’s willing to sacrifice for the group.” —Kareem Abdul Jabbar

You spend most of your life as part of a group—your family, your business, your community. Athletes respect choices made for the good of the team and learn to apply that attitude in other areas of their lives beyond the playing field.

“If you are afraid of failure, you don’t deserve to be successful!” —Charles Barkley

Sports are thrilling because there is just as much chance that you may lose as that you may win. Despite the risk, athletes eagerly step on the field or court without concern for the loss but in pursuit of the victory. When confronted with similar situations in life, athletes will be more comfortable taking the risk.

“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” – Bruce Lee

Athletes must be focused in their efforts if they want to become great at their sport. You can’t become great at tennis if you spend too much of your time practicing billiards, basketball, golf and soccer. The same holds true in life. If there’s something you want to be really great at, you need to focus your efforts on it and limit your distractions.

“If you don’t have confidence, you’ll always find a way not to win.” – Carl Lewis

Confidence can’t guarantee success, but lack of confidence nearly always guarantees failure. Most athletes experience this at some point in their careers as part of a team with great talent but without great confidence, one that finds ways to lose and then the following year gains confidence and finds ways to win.

“A person always doing his or her best becomes a natural leader, just by example.” – Joe Dimaggio

Athletes most respected by their coaches, teammates and fans are the ones who produce on the field. In many cases, these athletes are not very vocal and instead let their play “do the talking.” People always respect and follow a successful executer as he or she proves they can get things done.

“You’re never a loser until you quit trying.” —Mike Ditka

You’re not always going to win every game, but you always have to try. Athletes learn that if you give great effort but lose, you can still walk away with pride and dignity and the respect of your teammates. If you quit before giving it your all, you’ll achieve nothing and lose the respect of those around you.

“Good players create opportunities. The great players and the great people seize them.” —Mia Hamm

Athletes dream of the opportunity to take and make the game-winning shot. Significant opportunities come around in the real world, too, and athletes will be more ready to seize them, because they’ve pursued them throughout their careers.

“The superior man blames himself. The inferior man blames others.” —Don Shula

Athletes rarely say they were “beaten” by their competition, as they believe they are always in control of the game. If you win, it’s because you played your best. If you lose, it’s because you didn’t play your best and the other team took advantage of your off day. Athletes always look to themselves to achieve their successes and fix their failures—not to those around them.
