IMPORTANT: SYA has instituted a new integrated concussion training system. All players, one parent of player and coaches MUST take this online concussion training annually, regardless of whether you took our old concussion training in the fall. (If you are a parent AND are coaching a team, then you should do the coaches’ training. It will satisfy the parent requirement as well.) Players and coaches will not be placed on teams until this training is completed. 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.
