Concussion in Sports
The NFHS has teamed up with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to educate coaches, officials, parents and students on the importance of proper concussion recognition and management in high school sports. This course highlights the impact of sports-related concussion on athletes, teaches how to recognize a suspected concussion, and provides protocols to manage a suspected concussion with steps to help players return to play safely after a concussion. Each state’s requirements for concussion management are included as part of the course.
The MIAA has made it mandatory for officials to take and pass a test to be familiar with the signs of a concussed player. After completion of your test, print out your certificate and keep in your equipment bag with the copy of player and coaches disqualification forms
