Concussion Guidelines

Safe Sports Network recognizes that sport-related concussions pose a serious risk to young athletes. Therefore Safe Sports has implemented guidelines to ensure prompt and safe assessment and management after injury. A safe return-to-play process for athletes who have sustained a concussion is detailed in our guidelines. Baseline testing (before an injury happens) of neurocognitive and other parameters is an integral part of our program.

The full set of guidelines is available here. Your school’s guidelines may differ slightly. Please check with your school’s athletic department.
