Do I need a concussion training certificate in order to coach at the Haunted Classic this year?

Concussion Awareness Training

The State of Ohio has recently passed the "Return to Play" law that mandates that youth leagues, coaches and parents have an understanding of player safety and an awareness of injuries including those related to concussions. All coaches and any administrators carded with a team are required to complete mandatory concussion awareness training prior in order to continue to actively participate in coaching and training of youth players. For more information regarding the Return to Play please click the link below:


In addition Dayton Childrens Hospital will perform free baseline concussion testing if any players would like to have this completed

All carded coaches participating in the Haunted Classic MUST provide proof of concussion awareness training. If you have not completed the course, use the link below to complete the NFHS Concussion Training Course. Once you have completed the NFHS course, you will receive a certificate of completion. Please present a copy of this certificate for all carded coaches with your registration papers. Coaches without this certificate will not be allowed to participate in the Haunted Classic.

The application form does not look right on my screen (overlapping drop down boxes, long rows over the input fields, etc.) What is going on?
First, you should let the ENTIRE form load BEFORE you scroll. It is a big form.

In short, your computer does not have enough memory (RAM) available to render the form correctly. Here is the solution that will work in most cases:

1. Clear the cache (temporary files) in Internet Explorer (Usually Tools>Internet Options>Remove Temporary files
2. Shut down Internet Explorer
3. Restart the computer
4. Open JUST MS Internet Explorer.
5. Go to Web site, fill out form.

In most cases, this will solve the problem....
Will the tournament be using a one ref or three ref system at U8-U10?
We will be using a one ref system for U8-U10 age gorups and will be calling offsides. U11 through U15 will use a three man system and will call offsides as well.

U7 will not call offsides

Is the Haunted a Stay to Play Tournament?
The Haunted Classic is a Stay to Play tournament. If your team will be using hotel rooms they must use the hotel management service supplied on the Haunted Classic website. Please support our local, approved, hotels in order to help keep the tournament costs reasonable. These hotels supply valuable support to the tournament in the way of referee rooms and registration space.
