Ohio's Return to Play Law goes in effect April 26, 2013
Ohio's Return to Play Law goes into effect on April 26th.  An information sheet for coaches is attached and an additional information sheet regarding this law will be forwarded to all parents of players as required by the new law and posted on the lacrosse web site under "Info for Parents".  

Ohio's Return-to-Play Law requires that all coaches successfully complete an online Concussion Management Training course, two program options are below.


Beginning April 26th, Ohio's Return-to-Play Law requires the following for youth sports organizations:
  1. Coaches, referees, or officials must remove an athlete exhibiting the signs and symptoms of a concussion during a practice or game.    
  2. The athlete cannot return to play the same day that they are removed.
  3. The athlete is not permitted to return to play until they have been assessed and receive written clearance by a physician (MD).
