Concussions

Concussion Training

We require registered adults to complete concussion training every three years. While there are various online concussion trainings available, we endorse CDC’s HEADS UP training.

Parents are also encouraged to complete the free trainings on the website as concussion consequences don’t stay on the field.

Heading Rules

Per rule XX, we have heading restrictions based on age groups.

U11 and younger: prohibit ALL headers including in trainings and games

12U-14U: limit to 30 minutes per week in training. No more than 15-20 headers per player, per week in training. All headers in games are permitted.

15U and older: no restrictions
