Background Check and Concussion Training

Coach Requirements

Thank you for volunteering to coach with Mudsock Youth Athletics!

Background Checks

Mudsock Youth Athletics requires all head and assistant coaches to complete a background check (link below) every three years. Once selected to coach, the MYAthletics. office will determine which coaches require a new or updated background check. If a background check is needed, volunteers will be emailed by our background check provider, The Advocates at Sterling Volunteers, directly with a link to complete the screening.  

Concussion Training
Mudsock Youth Athletics requires all head and assistant coaches to complete a concussion training course every three years. If concussion training is required, the MYAthletics office will contact you via email. PLEASE NOTE:  FOOTBALL COACHES ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE A DIFFERENT CONCUSSION TRAINING COURSE* 

Coaches must complete the CDC Online Concussion Course (link below) to fulfill their concussion education requirement.  The CDC course takes approximately 45 minutes to complete and needs to be completed before the first practice. After completion of the online course, please email your completion certificate to [email protected], fax to 845-5687 or drop off at the MYAthletics office. 

*Football coaches and board members are required to take a different Football Safety Training course every two years. The league commissioner will email the course information to coaches.
