There are also playlists of the full length videos split into individual videos so different parts can be watched individually if desired.

On April 14th, Governor Heineman signed into law LB260, the Nebraska Concussion Awareness Act. This bill was sponsored by Senator Lathrop of Omaha, and took effect on July 1, 2012. The bill affects any schools having athletes 19 years old or younger, as well as any sports organization, including youth leagues, club sports, or any organization sponsoring a sporting activity where there is a cost to participants or where such costs are sponsored.
All St. Columbkille coaches must complete one of the training videos at the following website, print out the completion certificate and provide it to the Athletic Office. Sports commissioners will be in charge of ensuring all coaches have completed the training. The below website is a great resource for parents or athletes as well.
