Concussion Awareness Training

Concussions in sports are an extremely important issue for coaches of young athletes no matter the sport. The Sports Concussion Institute estimates that between 5-10% of ALL athletes will experience a concussion during a given season and those numbers increase for contact sports such as football and soccer. 

Because this is such an important subject, the National Alliance for Youth Sports offers a concussion training course as a supplement to the information members received in their NAYS Coach Training. This program is completely free to NAYS Coaches.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest Training

The National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) has teamed with Simon's Heart, a nonprofit organization that raises awareness about conditions that lead to sudden cardiac arrest and death in children. Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in the U.S., taking the lives of more than 350,000 people each year. It is also the number one killer of student athletes. Statistics like these are the reason that NAYS has sought further heart health training for members.
