Training program not ready as deadline nears

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - An online course on medical and safety issues hasn't yet been made available to Kentucky high school coaches, who have less than a month to complete it.

The Kentucky High School Athletic Association has been putting together the four- to five-hour online course. Officials with the association told The Courier-Journal that they aren't sure when it will be made available. The deadline for completing the course is July 15.

The course for high school coaches was mandated by a law passed
after the August death of high school football player Max Gilpin, who died of three days after collapsing at the end of practice. His former coach, David Jason Stinson, has pleaded not guilty to reckless homicide in the death.
