The NFHS has teamed up with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to educate coaches, officials, parents and students on the importance of proper concussion recognition and management in high school sports. This course highlights the impact of sports-related concussion on athletes, teaches how to recognize a suspected concussion, and provides protocols to manage a suspected concussion with steps to help players return to play safely after a concussion. Each state’s requirements for concussion management are included as part of the course.
Starting in 2014 the LCYBA has instituted a background check policy that is to be taken by all coaches and assistants. This background check is valid for 2 years and must be renewed after that time has expired. The cost of this background check is paid by the LCYBA.
The LCYBA is concerned for the players’ safety. Any adult listed as a coach or asssistant must complete the online background application and have a valid certificate of completion.
No one associated with the LCYBA can view the application and while the applicant will be notified if their background check is not accepted and provided appropriate details, the LCYBA will only be notified that the adult cannot be registered.
The LCYBA has chosen Background Investigation Bureau, LLC (BIB) to perform the background check. Information about BIB can be found by clicking on the BIB logo below. If you would like to move on to the background check please click ON THIS LINK
