A lot of discussion has occurred in the last few years on the subject of Concussion in Soccer. Calsouth has taken a very proactive stance asking their coaches to go through the CDC program on Concusions. This program is online and available to all LNYSA coaches so please take the time to review the course material.
Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports

The Heads Up initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.
