Jewelry--No earrings, piercings, watches, rings, necklaces, bracelets, wristbands, or hard casts may be worn during practice or game play. Hair bands, if used, must be elastic. Other articles that may be considered by the referee or coach to endanger either the wearer or other players must also be removed. Religious/medical bracelets and necklaces are not considered "jewelry" but must be taped to the body to the satisfaction of the referee. Failure to obey the referee will automaticall disqualify the player from participation until the referee determines the hazard has been resolved. FIFA Law 4--The Player's Equipment states under safety: "A player must not use equipment or wear anything that is dangerous to himself/herself or another player (including any kind of jewelry)."
A concussion is a brain injury. Concussions are caused by a bump or blow to the head and can be serious. You can't see a concussion. Signs and symptoms can appear immediately after the injury or sometimes not until days/weeks later. If your child reports any symptoms or a concussion, or if you notice the symptoms, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. If your child receives a concussion, or exhibits the signs or symptoms, they will be removed from play and will NOT be allowed to return to practice/games until cleared by a medical professional.
(You will be given a "Concussion Awareness" handout from your coach. Your signature, during the registration process and on the medical waiver, confirms that you received and understand the concussion information.)
