Concussion Certification

Coaches are strongly encouraged to become knowledgeable about the signs and symptoms of a concussion, and the protocols to follow when dealing with a player who may be experiencing a concussion.

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention www.cdc.gov), has provided information to all sports administrators, coaches and parents through a program called HEADS UP!

It takes around 25 minutes to go through the training.  Be informed and get certified here!
