CONCUSSION INFORMATION

Concussion Rule – 
Any Player / Cheerleader showing any sign of being concussed, will be immediately deemed ineligible for play / practice, until medically cleared to participate, in writing, by an appropriate health care provider, a copy of said clearance must be sent to the commissioner’s office and viewed, prior to the participant being cleared to participate. 

No participant may return to play without the express consent of the commissioner’s office. 

Failure to comply with this rule will result in the immediate decertification of member status within SYF. 

Participant safety is paramount!!! 

All coaches, players, and parents shall comply with all applicable concussion management and return to play protocols, and practice restrictions, including, but not limited to AB2127 and AB2007. 

*Athletes with the signs and symptoms of concussion should be removed from play immediately. There is NO same day return to play for a youth with a suspected concussion. Youth athletes may take more time to recover from concussion and are more prone to long-term serious problems from a concussion. Even though a traditional brain scan (e.g., MRI or CT) may be “normal”, the brain has still been injured. Animal and human research studies show that a second blow before the brain has recovered can result in serious damage to the brain. If your athlete suffers another concussion before completely recovering from the first one, this can lead to prolonged recovery (weeks to months), or even to severe brain swelling (Second Impact Syndrome) with devastating consequences. There is an increasing concern that head impact exposure and recurrent concussions may contribute to long-term neurological problems. One goal of this concussion program is to prevent a too early return to play so that serious brain damage can be prevented.
