CONCUSSION TRAINING
  SAY National requires every adult who is present on the coach’s sideline (even for a single game) to view the concussion video and complete the follow-on review test. 

 
The concussion policy, instructional video, and review test are available at
saysoccer.org.  Click on “referee.”


  Upon completing the concussion review test, coaches will immediately receive an electronic copy of their coaching certificate certifying course completion.  Coaches are responsible to forward a copy of their certificate to Norwood Soccer for retention.  Send to: Bsloannorwoodsoccer@gmail.com

Coaches should retain a copy in their team binder to show course completion on any given game day.
