PARENT /YOUTH ATHLETE CONCUSSION WAIVER

(required for participation in every sport)

The State of Wisconsin and the Y recognize that concussions and head injuries may result in youth who participate in sports and other recreational activities and that there are dangerous risks when a concussion or head injury is not properly checked or managed. The State of Wisconsin recently passed Wisconsin Act 172 which requires improved education of sports related head injuries and concussions for parents, athletes and coaches. For each sport, the Y will provide a Head Injury and Concussion Information sheet to all parents/guardians and youth participating in competitive sports activities. Parents/guardians and athletes must sign and return an Agreement Form indicating they have reviewed and understand the information about head injuries and concussions.
