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.

The efforts within the course circle around hockey’s landscape. Even if hockey isn’t your go-to-game, all students, players, coaches and fans are going to learn and review plenty of math and science. This mini-course, Future Goals – Hockey Scholar, delivers excellent graphics and lessons for learning learning and reviewing academic skills in math and science. The course takes about three hours to complete.
Kids from across Pennsylvania are starting to use Future Goals – Hockey Scholar to boost Science and Math Pennsylvania standards using this digital environment. Each 20-minute lesson resembles a virtual lab where students build their vocabulary and background knowledge, test variables, and draw conclusions from data. The modules contain self-grading assessments and help provide the “why” behind science and math topics.
