Remind Coaches of Important Safety Tips
Now that the season is underway, it's a great idea to send an email to all of your Region's coaches to remind them of important safety practices. Here are some to include:
• AYSO's official concussion policy and the AYSO/CDC Customized Coach Action Plan
• A reminder that if a player experiences a soccer-related injury, an Incident Report Form is required.
• If a player required treatment from a doctor, a Participation Release Form is needed before that player is allowed to return to play.
• A reminder to coaches about the importance of water breaks, and if necessary, sunscreen.
Be sure to also include your contact information. That way, if coaches have any safety concerns throughout the season, they know who to speak to.
