BC School Sports, the governing organization for school sports in the province, has mandated the CATT for Coaches e-learning course for its members who work with young athletes.

Every head coach, assistant coach, manager, teacher-sponsor and student-manager will complete the CATT training so they can better care for more than 70,000 youth at the more than 450 public and independent secondary schools that are members of BC School Sports.

“I am thrilled our membership has chosen to mandate concussion education for every one of our coaches,” said Jordan Abney, Executive Director of BC School Sports. “BC School Sports and our member schools are committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for our student-athletes to train and compete.

“Partnering with Dr. Babul and her team with CATT to ensure each person in a leadership capacity within school sport has this training is critical in delivering on that commitment.”
