Ohio's House Bill 143-Law on Sports Related Concussions

Ohio’s Return-To-Play law for young athletes was formed to ensure the safety of young athletes. To increase awareness and education and make sure athletes are safely guided back to play after suffering a concussion. With this new law all coaches and officials of youth athletes of the Van Wert Parks Department and any youth sports programs utilizing park facilities are required to go through an online concussion training. Coaches and Officials must have their certificate of completion on file in the Park Office prior to the season.

Parents and coaches can check out some important facts at OhioHealth Sports Medicine.

Give each and every player the opportunity to participate and to encourage them to do the best to their abilities.
