New for this Year
All head and assistant coaches will need to take the free On-Line State of Ohio Concussion training course to be able to coach a team this year.  Coaches will need to email a copy of their on-line training  certificate to Janet Habedank prior to equipment pickup on 11/2 (we recommend you provide the information no later than 10/20).  Parents to wish to help assist in games or practices are also required to take the training and register with the TBird coordinator.
