The Concussion Policy is a recent policy adopted by Special Olympics that requires all coaches in a Special Olympics Program to take the training course. The policy is based upon the safety and well-being of our athletes and to ensure that our coaches are aware of concussions and how to handle a situation if one arises. There are two different courses that are available to take. A coach only needs to take ONE of the courses. Here are the links and some information about the two courses.

  • Option 1: The Center for Disease Control's Heads-Up Concussion in Youth Sports training course, which is available at Certificate of completion must be submitted to our State Office. The best way to do this is to make a copy of your printed certificate and either mail it to Special Olympics Louisiana (1000 E Morris Ave, Hammond, LA 70403) or fax it to 985-345-6649. Or you can scan and email the certificate to This course takes around 30 minutes and is the shorter course.
  • Option 2: National Federation of State High School Associations Concussion in Sports training course which is available at (Many State Athletic Associations require their high school coaches to complete this course.) This option is a little more lengthy in time but after completion, we will get an automatic submittal of the completion of the course so the coach would not need to send a certificate over to us.
