If a coach believes a player is suffering from a concussion, the coach must remove the player from the practice/game. Once removed, the coach must email the Child Safety officer ([email protected]) with the child's name. The child may not return to practice or game play until the child's doctor provides a written slip clearing the player.
Here is a document providing general concussion information.
