Concussion Information

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Please find the concussion packet here. Below is a brief explanation of the concussion return to play procedure.

Pages 1 and 2 are the actual concussion policy. On page 2 you will also find the gradual return to play which all athletes must complete with the athletic trainer before returning to practice or competition.

Pages 3 and 4 are the doctor’s note which must be filled out by either your family physician or a neurologist/neuropsychologist. Please make sure pages 1-5 are given to the doctor. Notes from an ER or urgent care will not be accepted. Once the doctor signs the notes please return them to the athletic trainer. No other forms will be accepted. Please note there are 2 notes that need to be returned. Dakota’s and the MHSAA.   

Page 6 is a list of things to look for. If any of the symptoms are exhibited by your child, they must be taken to the ER right away.

Page 7 is a sheet for the athlete. It explains what happens to the brain when someone gets a concussion in teenage terms.
