Please read the following and follow the steps in order to complete the requirements.  


1. Concussion Training - watch the video, take the test, and then print certificate.  If you forget to print this certificate, you need to watch the video and take the test again.  There is a lot of good information on this site including a one page form for coaches to keep with them to be able to quickly evaluate a player and also a paper to hand out to the parents if you believe a player may have a concussion.

NLSC will pay for any required clearances as long as the volunteer is with the club for a minimum of one year.

Submit receipts to the Board for reimbursement.  If the volunteer leaves the club early, they must reimburse the club for these clearances.

ALL adults (anyone age 18 and up having direct contact with children) are “mandatory reporters” and must report any suspected abuse.

The clearances are good for 60 months.  They are portable and may be used with other organizations.  If you did not pay for your clearances, they may not be used for employment.
