HEADING PROTOCOL & CONCUSSION AWARENESS

We all know that some children can suffer head injuries, whether it's from head to head contact, head to ground contact, or head to ball contact.

San Francisco Youth Soccer follows the policy of the CDC, the US Soccer Federation, and CalNorth. We insist that all coaches and parents be familiar with the signs, symptoms, and warnings of possible concussions. This includes the stages of seeking emergency care or medical attention, and receiving a medical release from a doctor before returning to the field.


NEW FOR 2017  from CalNorth:


​In light of the recent passing of California Assembly Bill 2007, effective January 1, 2017, Cal North will now require annual concussion training through the Center for Disease Control (CDC) training link found at : https://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/coach.html
 
Any existing coach or person that plans on coaching a Cal North sanctioned team, club, league, or state team using their 2016/2017 Cal North coaching pass, must take this online class.

  • The course provided by the CDC takes 30 minutes to complete.
  • Coaches should retain the completion certificate for their records.
