Concussions in Youth Sports

Youth athletes who may have sustained a concussion MUST be removed from practice or play.

Head injuries are a serious concern for young athletes. State law requires that any Ohio youth athlete who may have sustained a concussion during practice or game play must be removed from both activities for the remainder of the day. Special care must also be taken to help youth who have sustained a concussion return to learning activities.
