Information on Coaches Certification Clinics to support All MRC sponsored Sports
If you are planning on coaching, or working with a team you must attend one of the coaching clinics. These are normally held on the first and third Wednesday of each month. Recertification clinics are normally one hour in duration. All Clinics will be from 7 -10 PM at the MRC main meeting room. For detailed times and dates see our calendar of events.
Although the MRC does not require CPR or First Aid training of its volunteer coaches, the following web sites are being made available for those wishing to refresh their knowledge of both these important life saving skills:
Incident Reports and Claim Forms: It is the coach's responsibility to ensure that ALL injuries requiring medical attention are reported to the MRC. This is done via the MRC Incident and Injury Report.
Note: An Incident report can be filed with the MRC as a preventive measure even though Immediate or Post medical attention was not sought by the player's parent or guardian.

To All Coaches:
Below is the url for the "Training in Sports Concussions' course issued by the CDC.
The video session takes the coaches through several scenarios and requires the coach to answer questions on line.
The course is about 30 minutes long and does not have the ability to record coaches electronically. At the conclusion of the session coaches will be asked to print out a certification of completion. The coaches will be required to forward the certification to their respective commissioners.
The commissioner are required to forward to the MRC safety director and the MRC Safety Director will record the completions in the coaches database and provide a list of completions to the sports commissioners as part of the candidate review process.
