Concussion Training

Due to the Virginia State Legislation (Virginia 2014 Va. Acts, Chap. 760 (2014 HB 410/SB 172)) that went into effect January 1, 2014, all tournament team managers and coaches are required to take the National Federation of High Schools “Concussion in Sports” training course.

This is a free course available on line at http://nfhslearn.com/courses/38000. There is no charge for this course and it should take no more than 30 minutes.

They may also take the Centers for Disease Control “HEADS UP to Youth Sports: Online Training” available at http://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/training/index.html.

Each tournament manager and coach, all district staff members, and all tournament officials must take one of these two courses each calendar year.
