Protect Your Head and links to other mandated courses for coaches in PA

Take this course and learn about head injuries and concussions. The course comes from the CDC and is without charge. Great for parents, coaches, officials and even athletes.

Launch the Heads Up Course and give it your attention. It is short. Get the app as well.

Volunteer coaches need to take this course too. The course is one that meets the requirements for scholastic coaches concerning the mandates of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania pertaining to concussion. Another course is required for cardiac education.

Every coach, Every year

These courses cannot be taken before July 1st of each year. Coaches don’t have to renew these for each season or sport they coach, but must complete one concussion course and the cardiac course before their first season of coaching. If you took the course last year you still have to take it this year.

Turn those certificates in.
