As professionals at the interscholastic level, coaches put the student first and the athlete second, so the athletic experience becomes a vehicle to promote learning and a safe playing environment. As a youth sports official, your actions (including strict officiating) help set the tone for safe play and can help lower an athlete's chances of getting a concussion or other serious injury. The overall purpose of this tutorial is to give you the ability to recognize the signs and symptoms of a possible concussion and respond in the appropriate manner. It will also discuss steps you can take to help your injured player recover more quickly by encouraging both mental and physical rest.
