Concussion Agreement
Posted Nov 28, 2018

Whether you are a coach, player, or parent you need to understand how to keep players safe in our sport. Sports-related concussions – in all sports – cannot be eliminated, but we can all do our part to minimize the risk. Help us keep our players safe! The information presented on this page comes from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

A concussion is a brain injury, caused by a blow, bump or jolt to the head that can have serious consequences. It can occur in any sport or recreational activity.

On June 16, 2011, North Carolina governor Bev Perdue signed the Gfeller-Waller Concussion Awareness Act, adding the state to the list of twenty-four states* that have enacted strong youth sports concussion safety laws since the first such law went into effect in Washington state in May 2009.
