For coaches selected, concussion training certification must be completed.  Concussion Certifications are valid for three years from the date of completely the training.  You are required to have a valid Concussion Certificate for the entire season.  The head coach is required to have valid Concussion Certificates for all coaches with him at all games. 

It's the head coach (or someone the head coach selects) to have valid Concussion Certificate for each adult in the dugout for each game.The NPYBA does not retain this documentation.
