Youth Athlete Sports Concussion Law and Requirements


Beginning with the 2010 youth track and field season all coaches, parents and athletes must read and comply with the new Washington State Law regarding treating youth athletes that may suffer a concussion while participating in sports practices and meets. In order for PNTF to be in compliance and receive permission to use some facilities the following must be completed:
· All coaches must view the tutorial on youth sports concussions. You can view the video at http://www.wiaa.com/subcontent.aspx?SecID=624. Once you have completed the tutorial please download two certificates, fill out and keep one with you at all practices and meets. Send the other one to your Club Administrator for file. 
· All parents and athletes must read and sign the Parent/Athlete information sheet. Club administrators must keep a form on file for all athletes registered with your club.
· If you desire to obtain additional information on the Youth Concussion Law please visit www.cdc.gov/concussionYouthSports/
· Questions: contact Patti Petesch, patti.petesch@seattle.gov
