Concussion Information: A concussion is a traumatic brain injury. Symptoms may include headache, loss of memory, confusion, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, slurred speech, fatigue, etc.

What can happen if my child keeps on playing with a concussion or returns too soon? Athletes with the signs and symptoms of concussion should be removed from play immediately. Continuing to play with the signs and symptoms of a concussion leaves the young athlete especially vulnerable to greater injury. There is an increased risk of significant damage from a concussion for a period of time after that concussion occurs, particularly if the athlete suffers another concussion before completely recovering from the first one. This can lead to prolonged recovery, or even to severe brain swelling (second impact syndrome) with devastating and even fatal consequences. It is well known that adolescent or teenage athletes will often fail to report symptoms of injuries. Concussions are no different. As a result, education of administrators, coaches, parents and students is the key to student-athlete's safety.

If you think your child has suffered a concussion: Any athlete even suspected of suffering a concussion should be removed from the game or practice immediately. No athlete may return to activity after an apparent head injury or concussion, regardless of how mild it seems or how quickly symptoms clear, without medical clearance. Close observation of the athlete should continue for several hours. IHSA Policy requires athletes to provide their school with written clearance from either a physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches or a certified athletic trainer working in conjunction with a physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches prior to returning to play or practice following a concussion or after being removed from an interscholastic contest due to a possible head injury or concussion and not cleared to return to that same contest. In accordance with state law, all IHSA member schools are required to follow this policy. you should also inform your child's coach if you think that your child may have a concussion. Remember it's better to miss one game than miss the whole season. When in doubt, the athlete sits out.

Inherent Risk: While participation in athletics provides student athletes with valuable and constructive experiences of both a social and physical nature, it must be remembered and understood normal participation in games and practices may also bring the possibility of serious injury. While every precaution is taken to safeguard athletes from injury, a certain amount of risk is inherent in athletic participation.
