Newton Youth Soccer - 40 years and going strong

COACHES CARDS & CORI CHECKS

All Coaches must complete a CORI form in order to coach with NYS or BAYS. 

New coaches should register for CORI here.  Please enter “Newton Youth Soccer” in the Name of Organization field on the form. Even if you have CORI registration for other volunteer activities, every organization needs it's own registration.   If your registration has expired Deborah Avant will contact you.  This takes some time, so please get this started as soon as you can. 

BAYS "Travel" Coaches must have a valid coaches card with 2016-2017 sticker to be on the sideline.
IM Coaches are not required to have a coaches card.

New Coaches -  Please e-mail a color photo (head and shoulders) to the NYS Registrar  - Deborah Avant:  avant.consult@verizon.net  You will be provided with your card the current season sticker at the coaches meeting prior to the season.

Returning Coaches - Make sure you can locate your card prior to the season.  You will be provided your current season sticker at the coaches meeting assuming your CORI and Concussion Awareness registrations are up to date.

Concussion Awareness

All coaches must have proof to have taken and passed the concussion training program within 3 years.  

Coaches need proof you have taken and passed the concussion training program before you can coach.  Once you have taken and passed the test, send the NYS Registrar proof and you will be provided a coaches sticker at the coaches meeting prior to the season. 

T
he issues related to concussions and their impact have risen over the past few years as research has shown how serious an issue this can be.  This year all BAYS coaches must take on-line concussion awareness training provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).   We have not mandated this for IM coaches, but have made them aware and will be implementing this as a mandate for future seasons.

The on-line course is available (free of charge) for anyone interested in learning more about concussions.   We suggest that parents take this opportunity to educate themselves on the symptoms of concussions and the appropriate way to monitor them.  You will be surprised as to how many signs there are that most take for granted or simply miss.  The course takes 30-45 minutes to complete.

If a player exhibits symptoms of a concussion (see attached fact sheet) NYS protocol requires the parents to provide written proof that the player has been evaluated by their physician and that the player has been fully cleared to rejoin the team - for practices and games.  It is for the players own welfare that this policy is in place to be sure that he/she is fully recovered and is not showing any signs of a concussion - even a minor one.  Minor concussions are still extremely serious and if a player returns too soon, then further health problems can develop.   


This fact sheet provides you with some basic information about concussions.  Please take the time to print this out, read it, and review it with your children as well.
