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.)
