Concussion Information

Concussion Information:

This policy is based on AYSO’s National Policy and is meant to provide as much protection to
our youth soccer players as possible. It is advisable that all involved in AYSO review:

Heads Up Concussion in Youth Sports

1. If a coach, referee, or parent suspects a player has received a concussion or is exhibiting
concussion symptoms, that player may not participate in AYSO games or practices for the
remainder of the day.

2. Coaches are to notify the Regional Safety Director that a player has been so removed. The
Safety Director will advise the Regional Commissioner of the player’s name and team number.

3. Removed players may only resume participation in AYSO games or practices once they
have provided their coach with a completed AYSO Participation Release Form. No other
form, note, or verbal message will be acceptable. The form can be found at:
AYSO Participation Release Form

4. Game referees will be advised by the Regional Commissioner of any players not eligible to play due to
concussion injury or symptoms. The player will only be allowed to play should their coach
have a copy of the completed Participation Release Form or if the referee is advised by the
Regional Commissioner or Safety Director or that the form has already been properly

5. The Safety Director will collect and hold all completed Participation Release Forms. The
Safety Director will keep written record of names of all players ineligible due to concussion
injury or symptoms.
