COLORADO CONCUSSION LAW

Coaches/Organizations,

Did you know that Colorado passed a new law known as "Jake Snakenberg Youth Concussion Act"

and went into effect Jan. 1, 2012. Basically, the law will require:

  • youth athletes between the ages of 11-18 must be immediately removed from a game or practice if a concussion is suspected

  • athletes will need written medical clearance to return to play

  • athletic trainers can supervise the return-to-play protocol after medical clearance is obtained

  • coaches must receive annual concussion training, including private non-profit volunteer coaches (Little League, Pop Warner, etc)

 

 Here's the link to the law:

I received the following link from one of the local city parks and recreations department. They used this link which according to them meets the requirements as stated in the law. At the end of the video it will produce a certificate to show that you completed the training.

Good luck in the upcoming season.
