NEW Concussion Policy - Wisconsin Law Act 172 - Statute 118.293
This law requires all youth athletic organizations with participants under the age of 19 to educate coaches, athletes and parents on the risks of concussions and head injuries. Also, no athlete will be allowed to participate in youth sports until the athlete and parent or guardian has returned a signed agreement sheet indicating they have reviewed the concussion and head injury informational materials. Due to the potential seriousness of any traumatic injury to the brain, the law mandates that any individual with a possible concussion must be removed from competition and not allowed to participate again until cleared by a health care professional with experience in treating head injuries.
At the beginning of each athletic season, all participating athletes and parents must read the Concussion ABC's for Parents/Athletes
and sign the Parent & Athlete Concussion Agreement
form. No person may participate in a youth athletic activity unless the person returns the agreement signed by the student and by his or her parent or guardian.
