Concussion Information

Piedmont Soccer Club Concussion Policy 10.8.15

PSC expects that all head coaches and assistant coaches:

  1. Be knowledgeable about concussions including the types of injuries which may lead to a concussion and signs and symptoms which may indicate a possible concussion.
    PSC recommends coaches obtain further online training on concussions through the free CDC’s Heads Up on-line certificate course (takes 35-40 minutes to complete):
    http://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/training/index.html
  2. If there is a possible chance of a concussion, remove the player from the field or practice session for further evaluation. (“When in doubt, sit them out”)
  3. Cooperate with the referees who may determine a player needs to come off the field due to possible concussion.
  4. Notify a player’s parent or legal guardian when a player is removed from practice or a game due to possible concussion.
