In June 2011, the state of Minnesota passed a concussion law that goes into effect on September 1, 2011 for all youth sports both PRIVATE and PUBLIC.
In response to this law, the LMAA has created a concussion protocol and provides information on concussions for parent, coach, and player review.
The concussion information can be found the navigation bar, left side of the website.
All Coaching applications and Checklist Items will be tracked Through Trusted Coaches. Please refer to your associations home page for more information on how to apply and begin completing your requirements.
The LMAA is asking the referees to fill out post-game feedback on all their games again this year. This feedback is very valuable to the LMAA and used as a self-monitoring tool; ensuring our coaches, parents and players are playing by the spirt of the rules.
If less than desirable feedback is received on a particular game, coach or fan base, the Head Coach for the impacted team will be invited to a Sunday afternoon conference call with representatives from the LMAA Board, your local association and the referees.
It should not be your goal to be invited to one of these calls. Game suspensions can and will be handed out. Please make it a goal to play a clean game. Be respectful to your opponent, the referees and to each other. Respect the game.
