Mandatory Concussion Awareness Training

posted Jul 24, 2012, 8:12 PM by Desmond Connolly   [ updated Jul 24, 2012, 8:22 PM ]

Nebraska Legislature Enacts New Concussion Law - LB260

On April 14th, Governor Heineman signed into law LB260, the Nebraska Concussion Awareness Act.   This bill was sponsored by Senator Lathrop of Omaha, and took effect on July 1, 2012. The bill affects any schools having athletes 19 years old or younger, as well as any sports organization, including youth leagues, club sports, or any organization sponsoring a sporting activity where there is a cost to participants or where such costs are sponsored.

There are 3 primary components to the Nebraska Concussion Awareness Act:

    1. Education – (a) concussion educational training must be made available to all coaches on how to recognize symptoms of a concussion, and how to seek proper medical treatment.  (b) Athletes and parents must be provided concussion information prior to an athlete’s participation on an annual basis that includes (i) signs & symptoms of a concussion, (ii) risks posed by sustaining a concussion, and (iii) actions an athlete should take in response to sustaining a concussion – including informing their coaches. 
    2. Removal of Athlete – an athlete presenting with signs or symptoms of a concussion thereby being “reasonably suspected” of having sustained a concussion (a) must be removed from participation, and (b) may not return to participation until evaluated by appropriate licensed health care professional, and,
    3. Written & Signed Clearance for Return to Play (RTP) – an athlete having been removed from participation for the purpose of presenting with signs or symptoms or “reasonably suspected” of having sustained a concussion must have, before RTP or participation is allowed by a coach, (a) written and signed clearance from an appropriate licensed health care professional, and (b) written and signed clearance from the athlete’s parents.

All St. Columbkille coaches must complete one of the training videos at the following website, print out the completion certificate and provide it to the Athletic Office.  Sports commissioners will be in charge of ensuring all coaches have completed the training.  The below website is a great resource for parents or athletes as well.
