Concussion Information
To help ensure the health and safety of young athletes, CDC developed the Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports initiative to offer information about concussions to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. All coaches MUST take a mandatory concussion in service to obtain a certification.
