Concussion Information

Michigan Concussion Law

Beginning June 30, 2013, Michigan lawmakers passed a law stating that all adults associated with youth programs and all participants under the age of 18, must review a Concussion Training program. 

Please reference the Fact Sheets to the Right

Adults: 

All adults associated with youth programs must complete a training program that has been approved by Michigan Law. The two web sites are listed below:

http://nfhslearn.com/electiveDetail.aspx?courseID=38000 (Preferred)

http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/HeadsUp/Training/index.html

Either of these sites will take you about 30 minutes to complete and there is no cost. Once you have completed the course, you will be able to print a certificate. Please send USA Softball of Michigan a copy of the certificate. At this time, you only have to be certified once.

If you have a certificate from either of the above listed web sites, this will satisfy the requirement. Your certificate must be on file with USA Softball of Michigan.

These requirements need to be completed before a team can be approved.


Players:

All players must review the concussion requirements, then print and sign their name. This requirement also needs to be completed before a team can be approved. This requirement is valid till a player reaches his/her 18th birthday. 

Concussion Form:

This Concussion Form, which is now a fill in form, must be completed by all adults and players, and then submitted to the USA Softball of Michigan state office by the head coach. The fillable columns are Student Athletic Name and Parent or Guardian Name only!

We would ask the head coach to submit all of the above items at the same time. Please do not send separately.
