Your child's school, public or private, must have a concussion policy that includes, at a minimum:

  • An information sheet that informs parents or legal guardians about the risk of concussions
  • A requirement that any young athlete who has concussion symptoms must be removed from play
  • A requirement that a child must be cleared by a healthcare provider trained in concussion management before returning to play

Recreational leagues are required to provide an information sheet to parents or legal guardians about the risks of concussions.
