Concussion Information and Management

OYSA Concussion Education and Management Program

OYSA has partnered with Providence Sports Care Center to provide our member clubs with educational guidelines and materials for coaches, parents and players. Providence Sports Care Center has also provided a comprehensive concussion management protocol that OYSA recommends all member clubs adopt. In addition to educational materials the program documentation includes a sideline toolkit for coaches, concussion care information for parents, and return to participation medical release forms. These materials are more completely documented in a Concussion Management Memorandum that has been distributed to OYSA member clubs. Click here to read the full memo.
