Governor Christie passed a Law on Sports Concussion Injury Prevention and Management back in December 2010 (see attached). If you have coached (or are coaching or know of someone currently coaching) HS Soccer you may have been informed about this and your Board Of Education (BOE) may have required you to take either the National Federation of High Schools Sports Concussion On-Line Training Program OR the Centers for Disease Control On-Line Training Program (see below).
Regardless, this law will also begin to impact all Youth Soccer Programs run through NJYS that apply to rent out/use HS or Public Parks and Recreation Fields -- besides turning in a Certificate of Insurance, School/Parks and Recs will require at some point start to require proof that all coaches using these complexes show proof of training in Sports Concussions.
Bottom line YOU MUST take the On Line Course -- NJYS will require coaches submit proof of having taken this course.
