SPPAA’s coaches and many of our volunteers are required to satisfy comprehensive Diocesan Youth Protection standards.  Dependent upon the specific athletic activity/program, sport-specific training may also be required.

Be you coach, volunteer, parent/guardian or spectator, there is some training which is just good to have in the event it is ever needed:   

                          AED (Automated External Defibrillator)  

                          CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)  

                          First Aid  

  • The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) hosts a Learning Center which offers a broad range of online courses.  One of them is a free (as of May 2016) course titled “Concussion in Sports”.   

                                        Thanks for helping to keep our athletes safe!
