City of Linwood Board of Recreation Coaches
There is a new insurance requirement that all Linwood Board of Recreation coaches, referees and officials involved in sports programs need to successfully complete a program on the new Sports Concussion policy protocol. This needs to be done before anyone participates in a sports program. If you plan on participating in a sport in the future, please be sure to complete this free on-line course at your convenience. You must forward your certificate of completion to the Linwood Board of Recreation before you will be permitted to participate in any sports program.
The link for this website with the new Sports Concussion policy protocol is www.NJMEL.org. New Jersey law is requiring that all organizations who use the Board of Education facilities comply with this program. The online training section has a link to a 40 minute free concussion training program and mini exam and at the conclusion the coach or parent will be able to print a certificate of completion.
