Michigan law that regulates sports concussions

The sports concussion legislation requires all coaches, employees, volunteers, and other adults involved with a youth athletic activity to complete a concussion awareness on-line training program.

The organizing entity must provide educational materials on the signs/symptoms and consequences of concussions to each youth athlete and their parents/guardians and obtain a signed statement acknowledging receipt of the information for the organizing entity to keep on record.

The law also requires immediate removal of an athlete from physical participation in an athletic activity who is suspected of sustaining a concussion. The student athlete must then receive written clearance from an appropriate health professional before he or she can return to physical activity. 

Public Act 343 of 2012


Michigan Law regarding Compliance of Sports Concussion Awareness Training for
organizing entites, sponsors or operators of an athletic activity in which youth athletes
will participate.

 All coaches will be required to complete the online training before the league season begins. More information and handouts will be available at our league meeting.
