Concussion Education

In order to protect young athletes, the State of Ohio has passed a concussion law, commonly called the “Return to Play” law. This law, similar to laws enacted in most other states, imposes training, safety, and awareness requirements on youth sports organizations, like OSYSA, and its leagues, tournaments, coaches, referees, officials, and athletes and their families.

A concussion is a brain injury and all brain injuries are serious. They may be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or by a blow to another part of the body with the force transmitted to the head. They can range from mild to severe and can disrupt the way the brain normally works. Even though most concussions are mild, all concussions are potentially serious and may result in complications including prolonged brain damage and death if not recognized and managed properly.

Because of the significant health concern posed by the risk of concussions, and because of the Return to Play laws enacted by the State of Ohio, OSYSA is instituting the following expectations of its leagues, coaches, referees, officials, and athletes and their families.

Each coach must receive concussion training prior to April 26, 2013, and that training must be renewed every three years. (SeeO.R.C. 3707.511 (C)(1).) Leagues and tournaments must collect and maintain certificates of compliance from the coaches and may ask for evidence of compliance. Upon OSYSA’s request, Leagues/Clubs must be able to produce for each coach evidence of compliance with the training requirement.
