To protect youth athletes, the State of Ohio has passed a concussion law, Bill 143, effective April 26,

This bill is also knownas  the“Return to Play” law. If a coach, referee, or official is knowingly not compliant with the Return to Play law, including training requirements and removal from play requirements, he or she could face civil liability (see O.R.C. 3707.511 (F)(1)) should a child become injured due to his failure to follow the law. Additionally, coaches, referees and officials who fail to follow the law may be rendered ineligible to participate in Ohio North member league events and Ohio North-sponsored events.

 

***Referee Concussion Reporting Policy***

Referees are required to notify the proper tournament or league officials for players removed from games for possible concussions as follows: 1) at Ohio North sanctioned tournament games, referees are to keep passes of players removed from games for possible concussions and turn those passes into the proper authorized personnel, to be held until the end of the tournament or until signed written medical authorization forms clearing the players have been received; 2) at league games, referees are to keep passes of players removed from games for possible concussions and return the player passes at the completion of the games; and 3) at recreational games, referees are to notify the proper tournament or league authorities of players removed from games for possible concussions.
