Concussion Protocol Training 
Concussion Protocol Training - 
This requirement is new for all coaches and officials in 2020.  USA Swimming will now require all coaches and officials complete Concussion Protocol Training by January 1, 2020.

  • Courses from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), as well as individual states’ required courses will satisfy the USA Swimming requirement. Therefore, if you are a high school coach, you may have already completed the NFHS training.
  • For USA Swimming membership, coaches and officials must successfully complete concussion and head injury education at least once. Courses may be accessed at
  • This requirement is necessary to avoid personal liability for concussion/head strike incidents, ensuring our insurers will continue to provide liability insurance protection to USA Swimming, coaches, officials and clubs. Please direct questions about Concussion Protocol Training to George Ward at
