House Bill 487 in the 2017 Legislative Session extended concussion protocol procedures to any entity that organizes
 or sponsors an organized youth athletic activity. USA Softball of Montana will need to formalize policies and procedures to inform
 coaches, officials, youth athletes and parents or guardians of the nature and risk of brain injuries. A form, documenting that
educational materials have been provided to and viewed by each youth athlete and parent/guardian, is needed.

Coaches and officials have to complete a training program once each year. USA Softball of Montana hopes to facilitate
this process through, the web-site for youth softball registration run by USA Softball,
and the state web-site with a link to the CDC protocols for concussions.

Concussion Information/Links

As a result of the misconduct and actions of individuals toward youth athletes in a number of sports, USA Softball is requiring
 all state level softball boards of directors and trainers, ACE certified coaches, and national tournament officials to
complete Safe Sport training. The training is intended to inform these individuals of the signs of misconduct and abuse
and the actions to be taken. Safe Sport provides 24-hour hotline access, training materials, investigative services and confidentiality.
