Concussion Informational Page

This page is designed to help parents, athletes, and coaches understand the guidelines used to evaluate and treat concussions. In December of 2012, the Ohio Legislative Branch passed a bill that addressed the issue of concussions which included stricter guidelines that schools, coaches, and officials must follow.

 

1)  All athletes participating in an athletic event must complete the Ohio Department of Health Concussion Information sheet.  This sheet is included in your annual paperwork packet that all athletes must be filled out.

 

2) Any athletes exhibiting concussion symptoms MUST be removed from the contest or practice and CANNOT return to play that day.

3)  Any athlete that exhibits concussion symptoms must be assessed and cleared with written permission by a physician (M.D. or D.O)

             Click here for an authorization to return to play form

 

4)  All coaches and officials are required to take a free online course to help them diagnosis concussions.  Parents and athletes are encouraged and welcome to take this course as well.
