Staff/Coach Concussion Training

Coach/Staff Concussion Training - REQUIRED

Welcome to the Coach and Staff Concussion Education and Training page. Please be sure to watch the coach and staff education video on this page before starting your season. This is a yearly requirement, but we encourage you to check back to this page frequently to remind yourself of the signs and symptoms of concussions and the necessary steps to ensure that your player returns to play safely. 


  • All concussions are serious
  • Most concussions occur without loss of consciousness
  • Recognition and proper response to concussions when they first occur can help prevent further injury
  • When in doubt, sit them out!
