CONCUSSION TRAINING REQUIREMENT

Managers/Coaches MUST complete the both an online concussion and sudden cardiac arrest training program.  The online concussion training can be done at either the heads up website, the nfhs website or any other similar website used by youth sports in Washington state.  These courses are free and will provide a printed certificate. 

Please printout and provide a copy of the certificate of completion at draft or placement meeting or email to president@capitolllittleleague.org  

IF you have training certificates from another sport that is still valid (one year from date of course) that will work for us also.
