Coaches Meeting - Becky Benjamin will contact you if you mark the box on page 1 that you wish to be a
coach. Plan on having a coaches meeting on Sunday November 2nd at 6:00 PM at Harrison Street Elementary
Gymnasium. We will select for our practices times after all age groups have had their tryouts. More Info at
Before you will be allowed to practice, all coaches, yes this includes all assistant coaches must complete an
online concussion training course. This is a state law. Paste the link below into your browser and
then click on the box to the right side of the screen that says “Launch the Training Course”. At the end there
will be a certificate that you can print or save as a file. I need for you to send a copy of your completed form to
Becky Benjamin. The course will take about 40 minutes. This all came into effect this spring, so any training
you may have had this spring will still be current. You will still need to forward a copy of it to Becky. http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/HeadsUp/online_training.html
Back Ground Checks- For all Coaches!
In addition, we will be using a new background check group this season, Verified Volunteers. The link is
below. The cost is $19.00. BWYBA is picking up half of the cost. The link is https://app.verifiedvolunteers.com
GOOD DEED CODE v51t2ws .
Everyone is required (including teachers, law enforcement, etc.) to complete the background checks. The argument we have heard is that those personnel have to have one on file with their employer to do their job so why do I need one with you. It's simple, if something were to happen and we (or you) needed to provide proof we ran a background check, we
couldn't. An employer will never share this information with us.
