Concussion Signs & Symptons

CONCUSSION PROTOCOL:If a football player or cheerleader are suspected to have a concussion by a coach or medical trainer they are to be removed from the practice or game immediately and are not to return if any signs or symptoms exist.  It is the responsibility of the parent to seek professional medical attention to determine if a concussion has occurred.  If a concussion has been documented by the certified medical professional the player or cheerleader will not be allowed to participate in practice or games until he/she has been cleared in writing by the certified medical professional.  If a concussion is not diagnosed a written note from a certified medical professional is still required before the athlete can return to regular activities.
Concussion Signs: 
appears dazed, confused about assignment or position, forgets plays, unsure of game, score, or opponent, loses consciousness (even briefly), shows behavior or personality changes, can't recall events prior to or after the hit or fall.
Symtoms : headache or pressure in the head, NAUSEA/VOMITING, balance problems, Dizziness, double or blurred vision, concentration/memory problems, sensitivity to light or noise, and feeling sluggish

Safety is our number one concern at WJF!!! Along with the extensive training we give our coaches, we meet monthly to discuss and review policies as well as follow the strict guidelines of being a NEYSA member. We have a player safety coordinator, Paul Bittar, Who is constantly researching, developing and implementing safety precautions.
