! IMPORTANT: If the referee believes a player may have sustained a concussion, the player will be told to leave the match and may not return to play. Players, coaches, and parents must not dispute such decisions! NVYLS referees have received concussion education and have been instructed to err on the side of caution. Concussions may occur even without a direct blow to the head and symptoms may not be immediately apparent. We only have 1 brain; let's do all we can to protect it!
The NVYSL strongly urges all coaches to take the online course offered in conjunction with the CDC. Here is the link: https://www.cdc.gov/concussion/Headsup/training/index.html
