Athletics Health Protocols

Concussion Protocol

The Concussion Management Awareness Act provides rules and regulations for the treatment and monitoring of students with mild traumatic brain injuries. The law requires each school coach, physical education teacher, nurse and athletic trainer to complete an approved course on concussion management every other year. View the concussion management policy.

Return to Play Protocol

Athletes must be evaluated for concussions or other injuries. The athletic director will work with the school nurse, school physician and the athlete’s medical provider to monitor all return to play protocols.

The district will follow the concussion management protocols as outlined by NYSED.

Dominic Murray Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act

The goal of the Dominic Murray Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act is to promote safe interscholastic athletics participation and to prevent incidents of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in student athletes. The law requires districts to provide information to parents/guardians of student athletes prior to the student’s participation in any interscholastic athletics. The law also requires teachers who coach extra-class athletic activities and coaches to hold a valid certificate of completion of a first aid knowledge and skills course offered by a nationally recognized organization.

The district will follow the Dominic Murray Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act as outlined by NYSED.
