Concussion Safety Course

Concussion Safety: Advisors and Coaches are now required to complete a free online Concussion safety course offered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This course is also recommended for all Participants. Upon completion of the course, the certificate will need to be presented at each Tournament Registration by each Advisor and Coach.
