Concussions are becoming a bigger and bigger concern throughout all sports. In line with that, IYSA has updated their policies and website regarding concussions. Please go to www.idahoyouthsoccer.org/education/concussion.aspx for all of the details.
A few items of significant interest:
(1) Starting the fall of 2015 ALL coaches within IYSA (that includes BYSL) are to be educated on the concussion guidelines (diagnosis and return to play, etc.) either via online certification or by attending a certification class. This must be renewed each year prior to being allowed to coach or be on the sidelines of any team.
(2) IYSA will have concussion certified independent evaluators and all IYSA ran events (including but not limited to GEM State Challenge, Directors Cup, State Cup). The evaluators will be called to any game where a suspected concussion has occurred. The player will not be evaluated by the coach by rather by the IYSA appointed medical evalutor. If the player is deemed to have had a concussion then the player will not return to play that day. They will then need to get a formal medical release prior to return to play.
(3) IYSA realizes that not every league venue can have medical personnel available. However, if there is medical personnel available then refer to the same rule that IYSA has for its events. Those that do not have medical personnel available we ask that “when in doubt, sit them out” and follow the guidelines that IYSA has outlined on its website.
Again there is more information on this issue on IYSA’s website (www.idahoyouthsoccer.org). BYSL intends to be proactive in meeting IYSA’s recommendations and requirements regarding concussions.
If there are questions please contact Dan Beck, BYSL President.
