More on Concussions in Sports: In a national study completed by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), concussions were the second most common injury among the country’s high school athletes after ankle sprains and strains. In addition, about 40% of those with concussions return to play before being cleared by qualified medical personnel. NFHS sport rule books for this year, as well as the UHSAA Handbook, will contain suggested guidelines for concussion management and administration. A free course on concussion management developed by the NFHS is available online and is an excellent resource. The 20-minute course provides education and instruction about concussions and the actions to take when a concussion is present. For the latest information regarding concussion in sports: NFHS Web site or the CDC Web site


Insurance Reminder: All athletes must carry a current insurance policy to participate in sports. For more details, please see Scott Platz, Director of Athletics.
