Pennsylvania Athletic Trainers’ Society Teams Up with the Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania to Offer Concussion Management Courses Across the State
Date:1/31/2013

Boothwyn, PA (PRWEB) January 31, 2013

In the state of Pennsylvania, coaches in both public and non-public schools are required to annually take a course in concussion management to fulfill the requirements of the Safety in Youth Sports Act of 2012. The Pennsylvania Athletic Trainers’ Society (PATS) is once again teaming up with experts from the Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania (BIAPA) to offer face-to-face training. These training sessions have been approved by the Department of Health as meeting the requirements of the law. To find a location near you listed by PIAA district click here.

These February workshops are targeted to reach spring coaches, youth coaches, sports officials, athletes, parents, school nurses, school counselors, athletic directors, upper administrators, including school board members, and anyone who wants to learn more about concussions. According to John Moyer, Head Athletic Trainer at Wilson High School in Reading “Compared to the available online concussion education trainings, the live program offers attendees the chance to ask questions and have them answered immediately on site.

In addition to these in person workshops, PATS provides an online version of this training free of charge to parents, coaches, and athletes who are unable to attend the face-to-face meetings.
