All coaches must take the Heads Up Concussion course found here. Parents we encourage you to take this as well. It will provide you detailed information on the signs, symptoms and prevention of concussions. Here is a cheat sheet facts form from Heads Up Concussion.
You may also visit American Academy of Neurology concussion toolkit by clicking here and you may click here for a quick facts sheet from them. They are an outstanding resource for anything related to sports and concussions.
For older teams, here is a concussion guide for teens to read through. The information is written by a teen for other teens; regardless the information is still good for them to read over or for teams to read over together at practice: Concussion Guide for Teens by a Teen
