Youth Athlete Sports Concussion Law and Requirements
Beginning in 2010 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. We need 100% compliance to allow us to continue to host meets at the best facilities available. In order for USATF Pacific Northwest to be in compliance and receive permission to use facilities the following must be completed by our coaches, parents, and athletes:
COACHES: All coaches must view the tutorial on youth sports concussions. You can view the video here. 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.
PARENTS & ATHLETES: 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.
