Concussion Training for Coaches and Referees

Updated date: Wednesday, April 30, 2014 - 11:22

Oregon Swim Coaches & Referees,

There is a new certification that we all need to complete in order to be a swim coach in the state of Oregon.  Please see the attached Senate Bill 721 for the details of the Concussion Training Law.

If you coach high school and have already completed this training, then you do not need to repeat it.  However the OSI Office does need a copy of your certification sent to them either via email or snail mail.  The sooner the better, but not later than MAY 1st.

If you haven't taken concussion training, then you can follow this link to do the FREE, online training.  It took me a half an hour to complete, and it was easy to listen to and to finish.  I will say if it gets 'stuck' on a page loading, you will need to use a different browser. (I had to go between chrome and internet explorer in order to finish - I contacted their help staff and this was their suggestion that worked for me.  The pages automatically save your location no matter what browser you use)  And I found I needed to click on the page if it showed up blank, then it got going.  At the end you can save a jpeg file of the certificate and then email it to the office, or you can print one off and mail it in. Your choice.

This is a new yearly requirement.  And for clarification, this is not a USA Swimming requirement, but a State of Oregon requirement.

The OSI Board is in the process of developing the materials needed for the parents and children to inform and educate so they know the signs and symptoms of a concussion.  As this information becomes available it will be sent to coaches and clubs.

The law is already in effect, so the sooner you complete this the better in order to be immune from civil and criminal liability related to head injury.  The OSI Board has given coaches a MAY 1st deadline to complete this training.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
