SOI has adopted a Concussion Awareness and Safety Recognition policy that requires ALL Special Olympics coaches (certified or not certified) to get online training free of charge. This is in keeping of Special Olympics on-going efforts to ensure the health and safety of all Special Olympics participants.   All Special Olympics participants should remember that safety comes first and should take reasonable steps to help minimize the risks for concussion or other serious brain injuries. 



Concussion training may be used for continuing education credits, just like protective behaviors, once every nine years.  To declare this training as a continuing education, you must complete a Sports Training Application (STA) (Sections 1, 2, and 4) and submit the STA with your certificate.  This training will cover all sports a coach is currently certified in.


The CDC website also offers a lot of educational resources. You can visit that site at
