EPYSL Required CPR Training and Concussion Education

 

To better protect and treat players that may have sustained a concussion, Cal North has developed a protocol for assessing, managing, reporting and protecting these players. Our goal is to help educate coaches, referees, parents and players to insure that players who suffer potential concussions are properly evaluated and treated before returning to play.

Cal North has three documents that coaches should be familiar with and carry at every practice and game in case a player becomes injured. All are available online at the links below:

  1.     Cal North Accident report form.
    1.     Coaches should fill out this form for any player injury to alert Cal North Staff and initiate the Insurance Claims process.

Coaching Resources

The US Youth Soccer Coaching Department has introduced its latest coaching resources with three age-specific practice activity guides. The three guides — for the U6-U8, U-10 and U-12 age groups — give coaches an idea of what should be covered throughout a season while highlighting activities that focus on development in a low-stress, fun-filled environment.  The practice activity guides can be very beneficial to those new to coaching youth soccer and act as a useful resource for experienced youth coaches. You can download all three practice activity guides below, as well as other useful resources from the US Youth Soccer Coaching Department.
