Concussion Information Sheet

The Dylan Steiger’s Protection of Youth Athletes Act, (Mont. Code Ann.20-7-1301 et. seq.,) requires youth athletic organizations distribute information sheets for the purpose of educating youth-athletes and their parents about the nature and risk of concussions and head injuries. This includes the risks of continuing to play after a concussion or head injury.

Montana law requires all youth-athletes and corresponding parent/legal guardian(s) are given a concussion information sheet before starting practice for an organized activity. Players and guardians are required to read the information prior to the athlete’s participation in the said activity.

A concussion is a brain injury, which should be reported to my parents, my coach(es), or a medical professional if one is available.
A concussion can affect the ability to perform everyday activities such as the ability to think, balance, and classroom performance.
A concussion cannot be “seen.” Some symptoms might be present right away, others can show up hours or days after an injury.
Players must tell their parents, coach, and/or a medical professional about any head injuries and/or illnesses.
Players will not return to play in a game or practice if they get hit on the head or their body causes any concussion-related symptoms.
Players need written permission from a licensed health care professional to return to play or practice after obtaining a concussion.
After a concussion, the brain needs time to heal. Players and parents need understand it is much more likely to encounter another concussion or more serious brain injury if a player returns to play or practice before concussion symptoms go away.
Evidence suggests repeat concussions are much more likely to cause serious and long-lasting problems.
