AIA Bylaws require all student athletes to complete the Brainbook online concussion education course prior to participation in practice or competition. Although lacrosse is not yet recognized by the AIA and is still a club sport in AZ, this course is highly recommended for all lacrosse athletes. This course, developed by the Barrow Neurological Institute, is also available to players in other states who need concussion training.
