Concussion Safety

Michigan sports concussion law requires all coaches, employees, volunteers, and other adults involved with a youth athletic activity to complete a concussion awareness on-line training program.

Required Concussion Training for Coaches and Officials

Coaches and adult officials are required to take an online concussion training course, then email a completion certificate to the Recreation Department.

  1. Download and print the Head’s Up Youth Sports Clipboard Sticker.
  2. Take the online training course. This should take about a half an hour, maybe a little bit more if you include the time it takes to create an online account on the testing website. You only ever have to complete this brief online course once, during your first season coaching.
  3. Print your certificate of completion from the on-line training course and deliver it to the Walker Recreation Department in the Ice and Fitness Center. You can do this in person, by mail or by email.

You only ever have to complete this brief online course once, during your first season coaching.

Note: Once the Walker Recreation Department has your certificate on file, you will not have to repeat this process when working in future seasons. You will only ever need to do this once.

Concussion awareness certification is required of all adults working with child athletes.
