ATTENTION Parents and Coaches - Special Olympics Introduces Concussion Policy

Special Olympics has implemented a concussion awareness and safety recognition policy to ensure the health and safety of all Special Olympics participants. All Special Olympics participants should remember that safety comes first and should take reasonable steps to help minimize the risks for concussion or other serious brain injuries. Coaches throughout the state are trained through the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and are required to turn their certificate of completion to the SOND State Office. For more information about concussions and concussion management please click on the link below.
