This CATT Course for Coaches is free, 45-minutes long and provides useful education on concussions. There are 6 short modules to watch with an appropriate quiz at the end of each section.

Effective 2022, each KLL team requires that at least one KLL coach, assistant coach and/or team manager complete the online educational tool, , but we continue to encourage all KLL coaches, assistant coaches and team managers to do the training.

Upon the successful completion of this CATT course for coaches, participants will receive a certificate. Please also email a copy of your CATT certificate to safety@kerrisdalebaseball.com for our records. Thank you.
