In recognition of the severe health risks that concussions represent to our players, the ECYSA Board of Directors has voted to make concussion awareness training mandatory for all coaches, assistant coaches and referees involved in ECYSA matches. It is further recommended that all parents and players be strongly encouraged to complete an awareness course as well.
There are 2 recommended online courses available at no cost, either are acceptable. Each takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and provides the participant a certificate upon successful completion that serves to provide verification and documentation of such.

Certification for ECYSA purposes will be valid for 2 years. Any coaches or referees who have completed the course within the past 2 years and can provide documentation of completion do not have to take it again at this time.
