Concussions & Sudden Cardiac Arrest

 
The following information is provided about Concussions due to a new Indiana State Law that went into effect July 1st, 2012.

The Law states that Schools must inform and educate high school coaches, student athletes and parents of student athletes on the nature and risk of concussion and head injury to student athletes, including the risks of continuing to play after a concussion or head injury.

Each year, before beginning practice for an interscholastic or intramural sport, a high school athlete and parent must be given concussion information, sign an acknowledgment receipt form and return the form to the coach. The athlete will not be permitted to participate until the signed form is on file.

An athlete suspected of sustaining a concussion must be removed from play, even during a practice or game. The student must be evaluated and receive a written clearance to return to play by a licensed Health Care Provider trained in the evaluation and management of concussions and head injuries.

The required forms can be found here and also on the Jay County High School’s Athletics tab on the Jay School Corporation website.
