It is BPYFA policy that all head coaches be familiar with signs of concussion by taking the free training on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC) website.
What Will I Learn in this Training?
This course will help you:
- Understand a concussion and the potential consequences of this injury,
- Recognize concussion signs and symptoms and how to respond,
- Learn about steps for returning to activity (play and school) after a concussion, and
- Focus on prevention and preparedness to help keep athletes safe season-to-season.
We can help athletes stay active and healthy by knowing the facts about concussion and when it is safe for athletes to return to play.
It is also recommended that ALL parents, guardians, and participants read and understand the FCPRD's Concussion Policy to familiarize themselves with the signs and symptoms of concussions.
Coaches, also available is the Parent and Athlete Information Sheet. Feel free to print and hand out to parents. Everyone benefits from being informed.
