CONCUSSION PROTOCOL

Your team admin should have received an email for the Concussion certificates.

If not here is the information sent out earlier.

This year Concussion Certification will be a requirement for all MYWAY Clubs to be in compliance with Michigan State Law.  The law requires all coaches, employees, volunteers and other adults who are involved with Youth or High School athletic activities to complete the concussion awareness online training course(s) listed below. For your Club Membership to be activated for MYWAY registration this year you will have to take the CDC and/or the NFHS online concussion course(s).  The CDC course link is for those involved with participants 12 years of age and under.  The NFHS course link is for those involved with participants 13-18 years of age.  You must take the course(s) that apply to your age level of athletes.  If you have kids in both groups you will need to complete both courses.  The courses are about 30 minutes each and at the end it will provide you with a certificate of completion.  PLEASE save or print that certificate.  Your certificate along with any other coaches, volunteers, staff, etc. will need to be sent to Steve Gross before start of the 2016-2017 season.  Please name your files with the person last name and CDC or NFHS (exampleSagemanCDC or SagemanNFHS).
