Herndon Concussion Policy

CONCUSSION POLICY – MANDATED BY VYSA – Must be completed in order for HYS to be in compliance with our leagues regarding concussions

In the Spring we rolled out to all teams our concussion policy to be in compliance with our leagues.  This summer, VYSA our governing body rolled out additional guidelines regarding concussion awareness and tracking.  All parents & coaches are to review the policy and complete the online compliance documentation.  To find our policy, please click on the homepage of the website or on the link below. 

HYS Policy:

 

In order to be in compliance with the new guidelines set, we ask that upon reviewing the documentation you and your player(s) complete the compliance documentation online.  Our goal is 100% compliance for all coaches, assistant coaches, managers, parents and players are all in compliance in accordance with the guidelines.
