Concussion Training

To comply with MN state law regarding concussion, the MYSA Board of Directors adopted a Concussion Policy at its July 2011 meeting and MPB adopted this same policy at its July 2011 meeting. 

In a very brief summary, the pertinent parts of the policy(s) for referees are:
1.  You need to complete an online training course every 3 years. 
2.  You "shall" remove a player from a game if they exhibit signs of concussion.

Complete the course at the following link:  http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/HeadsUp/online_training.html

1.  Plan on 30 - 45 minutes to complete the training. 
2.  When done, indicate your completion in your Game Officials account.  (Answer "YES" to the question about it.)
3.  SAVE A COPY for yourself because it is good for 3 years and you may be asked to provide proof you've completed it for other assignors.

MSHSL Referees: your training satisfies this requirement.  You can indicate completion in Game Officials due to the training you got to be able to work high school games.
