Northern Plains Coach/Official Concussion Training Requirement

Northern Plains Coach/Official Concussion Training Requirement

The following information is regarding a REQUIREMENT to COACH or OFFICIATE at Northern Plains this weekend.

Any person who wishes to obtain a coaches pass or who will be working as an official at the Northern Plains tournament MUST sign a ‘concussion verification form’ stating you have received training consistent with the “Concussion in Youth Sports” online training program available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Web Site.  CLICK HERE

Parents – please click HERE for educational documents on concussions.

USAW understands that many officials or coaches in the Minnesota area may have already competed this online training. For those individuals who have not completed the required training, here is the link. http://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/training/index.html Please plan for this test to take 30-45 minutes for completion.

A note from MN-USAW, “the training through the CDC is not the only training that fulfills this requirement, for example in Minnesota the training required by our state high school league for coaches and officials fulfills this requirement. If your state has a similar requirement for your USA Wrestling events and you have a list that you can provide us with those that have completed the training please forward that to Judi Tekautz, [email protected]

All other USAW coaching requirements must be met, regarding membership and a processed background check, as well.

The Northern Plains Regional Championships at the RCTC Regional Sports Center, May 19-21, 2017, in Rochester, MN.
