PA House Passes Youth Sports Bill
“We really need to start at a younger age educating parents and coaches and players of the significance of long-term concussions.”
Briggs says the bill would require student athletes and parents to sign a concussion and head injury information sheet each year prior to practice or competition. In the event of an injury the student could not return to play until cleared by a medical professional trained in concussion management. The bill still needs senate approval.
