Bill would require concussion awareness training

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) -- An old law may be getting an update to help protect children who play sports.

A Bill on it's way to Gov. Snyder's desk would require coaches, and anyone involved in youth sports to take concussion awareness training every three years. The 2012 law only requires them to take the concussion training once.

News 10's Marcus Dash went to Grand Ledge High school and spoke to head football coach Matt Bird. Bird and his staff have been ahead of the wave for a couple of years now, as they require all of their coaches to take yearly concussion tests.
