Concussion Awareness Training

Michigan law requires that all youth coaches, employees, and volunteers complete HEADS UP to Youth Sports: Online Training.  Once complete, you must retain record of the completion of the course or repeat the course.  The training is good for two years.

Wrestlers must be provided concussion educational materials and each athlete and parent must sign a statement acknowledging receipt of those materials.

If a wrestler is suspected of having a concussion they must be removed from competition.  They cannot return until they return a medical clearance form.  All documents can be found in the Documents section of this website.
