Concussion Information for Parents and Coaches
Maranatha High School has long been a leader in recognizing the seriousness of concussions and has for years implemented strict rules and guidelines regarding the participation by student athletes subsequent to a suspected concussion. All coaches are required to be trained annually regarding the symptoms of concussions and the methods they can employ to ensure the safety of our student athletes. Maranatha High School utilizes the Center for Disease Control’s Concussion program for training coaches. Coaches (and parents or athletes wishing to be better informed regarding concussions) can access the training modules online at http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/HeadsUp/Training/HeadsUpConcussion.html.
