IHSA Adopts Concussion Management Guidelines
Policies for the management of concussion and head injury in youth sports
House Bill 200, which recognizes the dangers associated with head injury and concussion, became effective on July 1, 2011. The legislation also requires IHSA member schools to adopt a policy regarding student-athlete concussions and head injuries that is in compliance with the protocols, policies, and by-laws of the IHSA. Information on the school’s concussion and head injury policy must be a part of any agreement contract, code, or other written instrument that a school requires a student athlete and his or her parents or guardian to sign before participating in practice or interscholastic competition. Click here to download the form.
A student athlete who is suspected of sustaining a concussion or head injury in a practice or game shall be removed from participation or competition at that time.
A student athlete who has been removed from an interscholastic contest for a possible concussion or head injury can not return to that contest unless cleared to do so by a physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches in Illinois or a certified athletic trainer.
If not cleared to return to that contest, a student athlete can not return to play or practice until the student athlete has provided his or her school with written clearance from a physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches in Illinois or a certified athletic trainer working in conjunction with a physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches in Illinois.
