Though several states have previously passed concussion education requirements, USA Swimming will now require all coaches and officials complete Concussion Protocol Training by January 1, 2020. Your certificate of completion should be sent to your LSC to update SWIMS.
Courses from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), as well as individual states’ required courses will satisfy the USA Swimming requirement. **Many high school coaches will have already completed the NFHS training. These courses are provided free of charge.
This requirement is necessary to avoid personal liability for concussion/head strike incidents, ensuring our insurers will continue to provide liability insurance protection to USA Swimming, coaches, officials and clubs.
Check with your LSC Officials Chair for the requirements in your area.
