Again for 2015-16

All head and assistant coaches will need to take the free On-Line Stare of Ohio Concussion training course to be able to coach a team again this year if you did not already do so last year (certification is good for 3 years).  Coaches need to email a copy of their on-line training certificate to Janet Habedank prior to equipment pickup day on 11/1 (we recommend you provide this information no later than 10/21).  Parents who wish to assist in games or practices are also required to take the training and register with the TBird coordinator.
