Each coaching candidate must register with RYFA prior to selection to coach.  All RYFA Coaches must complete a background check and concussion training.

Concussion Training

RYFA follows Minnesota state laws regarding concussion training and testing for coaches.  All head and assistant coaches participating in RYFA need to take the mandatory concussion training and have received the concussion training certificate.

Concussion certification is obtained through the Minnesota Heads Up Concussion Training.  Once you've completed the training - you will be given a test.  Once you pass the test you will receive your Concussion Certificate which is valid for 3 years.  Please save that document and upload it by clicking the coach concussion certificate below.
