MANDATORY NFHS CONCUSSION IN SPORTS TRAINING FOR MIAA HIGH SCHOOL OFFICIALS

All Massachusetts High School officials MUST complete the NFHS Concussion in Sports online training yearly.  The course is valid throughout the academic school year (e.g. July 1 to June 30)  Click on link below

105 CMR: Department of Public Health – 201.007 (E) Training Program

“Game officials shall complete one of the training programs approved by the Department as specified on the Department’s website annually and shall provide independent verification of completion of the training program to schools or school districts upon request.”

  • The yearly certification requirement is only valid between July 1st and June 30th of a given academic year.

In support of Department of Public Health (DPH) regulations cited above, and in the best interests of our student athletes, all MIAA Tournament Directors and Tournament Assignors will require successful completion of a DPH approved concussion training program as a condition for an official accepting an MIAA tournament assignment. Your acceptance of an MIAA Tournament contest assignment will be considered a implicit confirmation that you are a member in good standing with your local board, that you are enrolled with the MIAA, and that you have successfully completed a concussion training program as required by the DPH.

The National Federation of High Schools (NFHS) training module, “Concussions in Sports: What You Need to Know”, is one of the MDPH approved training programs and may accessed using the link:
