Mandatory Concussion Awareness Training and Information for Coaches and Parents

 California law mandates that all coaches must receive training on concussions. The training may be fulfilled through the free, online course available through the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). All managers, coaches, team moms and others who will be working with the team are required to complete this course prior to beginning practice with their teams.

Click the link below, then click on the Order Course button under the Concussion in Sports headline. You will have to register using your email address, and after a somewhat involved registration process can eventually order the training course.

 Upon completion of the course download and print the certificate of completion. The certificate of completion should be available for Little League officials for various events.

Additionally, on a yearly basis, a concussion and head injury information sheet shall be signed and returned by the athlete's parent or guardian before the athlete's initiating practice or competition. The following documents are provided to meet this requirement:
