Concussions are a serious health concern in youth sports. The DRSC is committed to the physical and emotional safety of our players. In order to focus on this commitment we are educating our coaches, parents and Board Members in the dangers of concussion-related injuries.
The DRSC will provide our members with tools and recourses to educate them on the extreme dangers of concussions; how to prepare for and protect against concussions; the causes and recognizing the symptoms of a concussive injury.
All coaches in the DRSC will be required to have completed a Concussion Certification. The recommended course is provided free from the CDC and may be accessed by the following link. CDC Heads Up Concussion Training
It is also recommended that parents take this free online course so they know and understand the severity, the symptoms, and recovery information of concussion-related injuries.
