WYS Mandatory Concussion Training for ALL Coaches, Assistants, and Parent Managers
Westwood Youth Soccer requires that all coaches complete mandatory concussion training prior to coaching in WYS. This training can be done in the home on any computer. It will take 20 to 30 minutes to complete. You cannot save your progress so will need to complete the training all in one session.
At the end of the training session, there will be a list of questions you need to answer and when you are done a certificate will pop up. You type in your name and save the PDF file or you can print it or take a screen print of it. It is probably wise to do both. Note: once you log out your information will NOT be saved at the CDC site but will be saved if you register and use the NFHS website.
You must send your certificate of completion to your age group coordinator listed and linked below:

Some coaches have reported getting hung-up in the middle of the course. That is not what is happening. When you get to the screen pictured below, you choose either Home or School. Once you choose open, then choose the other. There will be a Continue button on the screen at that point. See bottom image.
