AYSO Region 161 - Port Huron MI

Concussions

AYSO has partnered with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to use the “Heads Up” Concussion training tools in support of the following guidelines in order to ensure the safety of all our participants:

  • The AYSO/CDC Parent/Athlete Concussion Information Sheet is used to inform parents and players about the potential risks associated with concussions. Michigan State Law requires that signatures of a parent and/or athlete must be obtained each membership year
  • CDC Heads Up Concussion training is required by Michigan State Law for all Coaches and Referees.
  • The AYSO/CDC Coach/Referee Action Plan provides coaches/referees with the signs and symptoms of concussion and the recommended steps to take whenever a player exhibits any sign or symptom.
  • AYSO strongly recommends that parents/guardians seek medical attention whenever a player exhibits any signs or symptoms of a concussion and obtain a clearance by a medical professional before the player is allowed to return to play. When required by state law, parents must obtain a medical clearance in addition to completing the Participation Release Form.
  • If a player exhibits any signs or symptoms of a concussion and is removed from play or not permitted to participate, the player may not return to play for the remainder of that day.
  • AYSO requires an AYSO Participation Release Form, signed by a parent/guardian, acknowledging that the player has been given clearance before the player can return to play.
  • The Region Safety Director must receive an AYSO Incident Report, signed Participation Release, copy of the signed Player Registration Form and copy of any SAI claim whenever a player is removed from play due to signs/symptoms of concussion.
  • All forms and further information are available on this website (Forms) or from Region 161 Safety Director: Jennifer Sattler ([email protected])
