One of the primary goals of SYA is to ensure the safety of all of our players during practices and games. As such, beginning this season, and going forward, we are now requiring that parents, players and coaches complete an online concussion safety and training program annually.
This program is offered in conjunction with INOVA Health Services and has been specifically designed for our players, parents and coaches to ensure the safety and education of all our participants. This online program MUST be taken annually by the player, one parent and all coaches before being assigned to a team.
The program can be completed by following the link provided at the end of the online registration. Each family and coach must create an INOVA family account using the link. When creating the Family account, select Southwestern Youth Association (SYA) as the organization of which you are a member, so that your Concussion training is recorded and tracked properly by our system. Please be sure to use the exact names you used to register with SYA (and date of birth) so the proper credit can be made.
If you did not complete the training at the time of registration you can complete it at a later date using this link: https://www.youthleaguesusa.com/inova/FamilyAccount.html. Players and coaches will not be drafted or assigned to teams until the training is completed. Check our FAQs for more details.
