MN Concussion Law Announcement
Minnesota Legislature's New "Concussion Law" Requires Online Training for All Coaches and Officials and Concussion Education for all Parents and Athletes Starting this Fall
The Minnesota Legislature recently passed a "Concussion Law" which requires any municipality, business, school district or nonprofit organization that organizes a youth athletic activity and charges a fee to follow the statute's requirements, including implementing concussion training and education to improve player safety and establish safe return-to-play policies for athletes who sustain a concussion.
The law mandates that:
All coaches (head and assistants) and officials receive concussion training and education by September 1, 2011, and then at three-year intervals thereafter.
Coaches must remove an athlete from activity if they exhibit signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion and/or are suspected of sustaining a concussion.
The law also requires a doctor's signature to return to play if an athlete is removed due to a concussion or is showing signs or symptoms of a concussion.
RYBA is using the same Concussion training that RCYBA used in the 2011-2012 season and if you have had this training within the 3 year perior you may upload through our Concussion Registration session the same certfiicate. You must register and upload proof of this education with the RYBA registratoin found under the coaches tab.
RYHA uses a USA Hockey education program including age specific modules in 2011-2012 season and it does include the mandated concussion training within this education. If you have a PDF file of this certification completion it will count towards the concussion training if it is within the 3 year period. You must register and upload proof of this education with the RYBA registratoin found under the coaches tab.
If you have coached at the High School level, the certification through MSHSL is also valid and if you can upload a digitial certification or record/proof of taking the training, it will also suffice.
