Michigan concussion law

Beginning June 30, 2013, Michigan lawmakers passed a law stating that all adults associated with youth programs and all participants under the age of 18, must review a Concussion Training program. 

Please click here for the Coaches fact sheets. 

Please click here for the Parents fact sheet.

Adults: 

All adults associated with youth programs must complete a training program that has been approved by Michigan Law. The two web sites are listed below:

http://nfhslearn.com/electiveDetail.aspx?courseID=38000   (Preferred Choice by MASA)

http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/HeadsUp/Training/index.html

Either of these sites will take you about 30 minutes to complete and there is no cost. Once you have completed the course, you will be able to print a certificate. Please send MASA a copy of the certificate. At this time, you only have to be certified once.

If you have a certificate from either of the above listed web sites, this will satisfy the requirement. Your certificate must be on file with MASA.

These requirements need to be completed before a team can be approved.


Players:

All players must review the concussion requirements, then print and sign their name. This requirement also needs to be completed before a team can be approved. This requirement is valid till a player reaches his/her 18th birthday. 

Concussion Form:

This Concussion Form, which is now a fill in form, must be completed by all adults and players, and then submitted to the MASA state office by the head coach. The fillable columns are Student Athletic Name and Parent or Guardian Name only!

We would ask the head coach to submit all of the above items 'at the same time'. Please do not send separately.

Please click here for the Concussion Form.
