6.) Online or In-Person CONCUSSION TRAINING
***While concussion training is not required to participate in Winter Conditioning, it is important to complete it as soon as possible so that it is completed by mid-January for Spring Crew.***

If you and your rower have not completed PWCS’s Concussion Training requirements this school year, you will need to do so.  
-Rowers who HAVE previously attended an in-person PWCS High School Concussion Training session can complete their 2018-19 annual concussion training online, if they have not already done so this school year. Print, sign and turn in completed online certificate to the AD Student Activities office.
-Rowers who HAVE NEVER attended an in-person PWCS High School Concussion Training session will need to attend one session at any Prince William County High School to meet this requirement.  Please note that both the student and a parent are required to be in attendance for the in-person training sessions.  Ensure that you arrive at the school early because they close the doors when it starts and will not allow you to enter once the program begins.  For your record take a picture of the form you are to fill out during the training session to keep for your record.  After attending, the AD/Student Activities office will verify your attendance to us so you will not need to hand anything in to us.
