Per Senate Bill 11-040 it is mandatory all coaches to have completed a concussion certification course before stepping onto a field. Head coaches, it is your responsibility to make sure your coaches are all in compliance.
For head coaches who registered as a full team, you will certify that you and all your assistants have completed a qualified concussion training course. Qualified course would be Chase, Heads Up, and NHS. All training is updated annually and you must be able to provide certificates upon request. By registering, you are attesting that you and your coaches have concussion certification as outlined by Senate Bill 11-040 - The Jake Snakenberg Youth Concussion Act.
For head coaches who register as part of an individual players team, every coach on your team must provide Jeffco Coop verification of their concussion certificate. Returning South Jeffco and Bear Creek coaches from Spring/Summer baseball, we already have your certifications on file.
For our free concussion course use the following link http://nfhslearn.com/courses/61037/concussion-in-sports. Once completed, email a copy of the certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put in the email subject line 'Concussion Certificate - Team Name (Coach) - Your First and Last Name'. Many coaches may have a copy of their concussion certificate from this spring season. We can use that certificate as well. Please email those to Lisa as mentioned above.
Background checks are required for all coaches who step on the field.
For head coaches who registered as a full, outside team, you will certify that you and all your assistants have completed a background check through your local league or tournament provider. Your background check is updated annually. By registering, you are attesting that you and your coaches have completed an annual background check. Please have your passed background available if your team parents ask to verify.
For head coaches who register as part of a South Jeffco team, an individual players team, your background check as well as all your assistants must be verified by the Jeffco Coop (the South Jeffco office - email@example.com) per our commitment to the safety of our individual registered participants. Returning South Jeffco and Bear Creek coaches from Spring/Summer baseball, we already have your certifications on file. All other coaches, must provide us copy of passed background check from your local league, or you must resubmit a background check. See below for further details.
