High School Coaches Adjust To New Concussion Requirements

ST. CLOUD — As the high school football season is getting underway, a new mandate requires coaches to have concussion training. In fact, any coach who works with kids under 18-years-old has to take an online course.

It is a follow-up top last year’s law requiring coaches and officials to remove players from competition if they show signs of a concussion.

Apollo High School Activities Director Chris McElroy says with so many questions surrounding long term impacts of concussions, the Minnesota State High School League wants to be proactive.

McElroy says most varsity-level sports have a certified trainer on hand, but the training is especially helpful for sports that fall below the varsity level because those programs may not have certified trainers.
