Concussions can occur while participating in any sport or recreation activity. Since the circumstances under which a concussion can be sustained are so varied, it's important for all coaches, parents/coaches/guardians, and athletes to be aware of the signs, symptoms, and what to do if a concussion occurs. The eLearning modules teach you how to recognize the signs and symptoms of a concussion - and also how to respond.
All coaches will need to complete an Enhanced Police Information Check (E-PIC). E-PIC can be starting by selecting the option when you register to coach with YUFC.
