Concussion training is a mandatory requirement from the State of Washington, The Greater Eastside Junior Football Association (GEJFA) and Issaquah Youth Football (IYF). Under no circumstances is any player allowed to participate on any GEJFA Junior Football team until the player and their parent completes the annual concussion training and certifies their completion.
The 2009 Washington State Legislature passed “The Lystedt Law” HB 1824. This law requires that non-profit youth athletic associations, all COACHES, PARENTS and PLAYERS be educated as to the nature and risk of concussion and head injuries including the continuation of play after a concussion or head injury. This educational process shall include instruction on the signs and symptoms of concussions/brain injury and must be completed annually before any player can participate in any youth contact sport. Additionally, Youth Football Programs will face serious consequences if not 100% compliant.
To facilitate this process, we have integrated the concussion training review quiz as part of our online registration process.
1) When registering, you will be prompted with 10 questions that must be answered by you and your child together.
2) You cannot complete the registration process until you both have successfully completed the quiz and acknowledged that fact.
3) The following fact sheet will provide all the information needed to complete the quiz.
