In 2011, the State of Minnesota passed a new law, requiring, among other things, that ALL youth athletic coaches and officials receive training on concussions. For American Legion Baseball in Minnesota, the training is free, available on-line, and only takes 20-30 minutes to complete.
Click here for a one-page policy handout for Legion Team Managers on the law's requirements. Teams must plan accordingly, so that ALL coaches (head and assistant) are properly trained before the start of any tryouts, practices, games. Coaches who do not submit proof of training are NOT eligible to coach Legion Baseball. In addition, all those who umpire Legion games must have completed training, or they are personally in violation of the law.
Once completed, training is valid for three (3) years, after which, training must be recompleted -- and a new certificate of completion must be submitted.
