Ski Racer and national softball athlete Jenna Sneva of Bend went to Salem on Tuesday to push for a bill that would help protect kids involved in club sports.

She has 12 concussions- mostly "knock-out" ones she received while playing in sports-  in her case she says the coaches said to just keep going...

 

"As an athlete i looked up to my coach for wisdom - but they believed that when something  hurt - the pain  was just weakness leaving the body."

 

She tells her story on a website called - "taking it head-on".  The Senate Bill would mandate free- online training on concussions for coaches and others involved in club sports- it now moves to the Senate floor for a vote.

State Senator Tim Knopp of Bend is sponsoring the bill.  He says there is no cost because the online training is free.
