Concussion Education - Coaches

To protect youth athletes, the State of Ohio has passed a concussion law, Bill 143. This bill is also known as  the “Return to Play” law. This law, similar to the laws enacted in most other states, enforces training, safety, and awareness requirements on youth sports organizations, such as CAA, and its leagues, tournaments, coaches, referees, officials, and athletes and their families.

A concussion is an injury to the brain that may be caused by a blow, bump, or jolt to the head. Concussions may also happen after a fall or hit that jars the brain. A blow elsewhere on the body can cause a concussion even if an athlete does not hit his/her head directly. Concussions can range from mild to severe, and athletes can get a concussion even if they are wearing a helmet. 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.

Each CAA coach must participate in a certified concussion training course. The training must be renewed every three years. Following is the link to the CDC HEADS Up for Youth Sports Program. The site includes Concussion Resources for Youth Sports Coaches, Parents and Officials. All CAA coaches should complete the On-line Concussion Training program (30-45 min). Upon completion, please forward your completion certificate to [email protected]
