The STMA Girls’ Varsity Coaching Staff will interview and select head coaches for the girls travel teams. There will be no preference given to a parent coach over a non-parent coach. The best interest of the team and players will be primary objectives in the selection of any coach. To be considered for a head coaching position, all candidates must submit a coaching application, complete a background check authorization form and agree to the Coaches Code of Conduct.
It is important to remember that you, as a coach, represent your family, team, and community. Sportsmanship and creating a positive learning environment for your team is vital.

Minnesota Concussion Law
The Minnesota Legislature's "Concussion Law" Requires Online Training for All Coaches and Officials and Concussion Education for all Parents and Athletes (began in the fall of 2011).
The Minnesota Legislature passed a "Concussion Law" which requires any municipality, business, school district or nonprofit organization that organizes a youth athletic activity and charges a fee to follow the statute's requirements, including implementing concussion training and education to improve player safety and establish safe return-to-play policies for athletes who sustain a concussion.
The law mandates that:
The Concussion Education for coaches and officials is an online video training session developed by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the National Federation of State High Schools. This course requires registration but is free. The training process involves watching a video and then successfully completing a quiz. The entire training module can be completed in a little over a half an hour and then participants can print out a certificate on their desktop or print and scan the certificate to create a digital file.
When you finish the training, you will need to forward the Certificate of Completion to Kent Hamre. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
If you have already completed this for another sport, you should already have a certificate and can forward it to Kent Hamre.
