Concussion - Online Training

Coaches:

Governor Christie passed a law on Sports Concussion Injury Prevention and Management back in December 2010. This law impacts all youth soccer programs run through New Jersey Youth Soccer that apply to rent out/use high school, public parks or recreation fields.  Besides turning in a Certificate of Insurance, schools, parks and recreation departments will require proof that all coaches using these complexes have training in sport's concussions. 

The bottom line is that ALL coaches MUST take the online course and New Jersey Youth Soccer will require that ALL coaches submit proof of having taken this course.
