Concussion Management Overview

In November of 2012, the Eastern Youth Soccer Association (EPYSA) Board of Directors passed a policy endorsing the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Act 101, known as the "Safety In Youth Sports Act."  The Policy on Concussion Procedure and Protocol mandates concussion education for everyone involved in our sport, including parents and players.  This policy also mandates certification for all coaches at all levels.   In addition, all member organizations must certify annually that they are in compliance with the policy.

ALL COACHES (Intramural and Travel)  MUST GET AN ANNUAL CERTIFICATION


Concussion Management Certification

Each intramural or travel coach must complete the Center of Disease Control: Traumatic Brain Injury Certification on an annual basis prior to coaching for the upcoming season.  This test will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.  You will be asked questions during and after the test.  Upon completion of the test, you will receive your certification.  Print or email a copy of your certification to your Travel or IM Coordinator.
