Concussion Law

The Wisconsin DPI has published the Sideline to Safety (concussion law) guidelines for youth athletic organizations.  With the publication of the guidelines, the law is now implemented.

Wisconsin Concussion Law Act 172 - Statute 118.293

Summary
The law requires all youth athletic organizations to educate coaches, athletes and parents on the risks of concussions and head injuries and prohibits participation in a youth activity until the athlete and parent or guardian has returned a signed agreement sheet indicating they have reviewed the concussion and head injury informational materials. The law requires immediate removal of an individual from a youth athletic activity if symptoms indicate a possible concussion has been sustained. A person who has been removed from a youth athletic activity because of a determined or suspected concussion or head injury, may not participate again until he or she is evaluated by a health care provider and receives written clearance from the health care provider to return to the activity.
 
“At the beginning of a season for a youth athletic activity, the person operating the youth athletic activity shall distribute a concussion and head injury information sheet to each person who will be coaching that youth athletic activity and to each person who wishes to participate in that youth athletic activity. No person may participate in a youth athletic activity unless the person returns the information sheet signed by the person and, if he or she is under the age of 19, by his or her parent or guardian.”

Note:  The law was amended in 2013 and the concussion information and acknowledgement must only be distributed and collected once per school year.  Effective:  December 15, 2013

All Student Athletes MUST COMPLETE 1 Concussion Parent/Athlete Agreement Signature Form for each School Year.
