Indiana - A new bill could make Indiana the first state to require High School football coaches to take part in a player safety and concussion training course every two years. The bill is set to take effect in July and will also require football athletes with a suspected concussion to be removed from play for at least 24 hours. In certain circumstances, civil immunity for coaches would also be provided with the bill. Some supporters hope to extend the law to soccer programs across the state.
