Concussion Training & Education for Coaches & Parents 

The Inver Grove Heights Parks and Recreation Department is committed to safety in sports and that includes some of the not-so-obvious injuries such as concussions. 

Our policy in accordance with MN State Statute 604A.11 provides a procedure for identifying concussions and what to do should one be expected. This policy is also in line with the Center for Disease Control (CDC)
