2017 Background Check and Concussion Training - Mandatory!
Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Team Parents--You must take the concussion training and fill out a background check every year and it is time for the 2017 season. Any person who steps on the field with the players must be background checked and take the training! This concussion course is also highly recommended for parents.
In order to submit the background check form please find it on our website under the left hand navigation Online Forms. Once you submit this you do not need to do anything else for the background check.
Concussion training is mandatory for all coaches in youth sports in the state of Colorado under the Jake Snakenberg Act. A link to the online training module is below.
