Concussion Information and Injury Report Forms
See the attached Fact Sheets for important information about the concussions.
Any suspected head injury should be treated with concern for the well being of the student-athlete.
Forms should be filed with the league coordinator when a student-athlete is being treated with a suspected or diagnosed concussion. Forms are attached.
EAA CONCUSSION POLICY - REQUIRED FOR PARTICIPATION
All student-athletes (and all coaches) participating in any EAA Athletic Program and one of their parents (of student-athletes only), each individually, must view and complete the questions from either of the following concussion courses (only 1 certificate is produced per viewing):
Instructions on Completing the NFHS Learn Concussion In Sports Course
or the CDC “Heads Up Concussion in Youth Sports” – Launch the Course
Choose one course, view video, and complete questions.
Please note: If you choose the NFHS Learn Concussion In Sports Course, you will only be able to produce 1 certificate for 1 person using 1 email (you will need to open an account and log in using 2 different e-mails if the student-athlete and the parent decides to view the NFHS concussion course). The CDC Heads Up in Youth Sports video does not require opening an account and entering an e-mail.
A copy of the student-athlete’s/coach's concussion certificate AND a copy of the parent’s concussion certificate should be uploaded to the student’s EAA registration on the league website. These forms cannot have hand-written signatures.
➜ Read, complete, and upload with the registration the “Parent-Athlete Concussion Information Sheet,” which can be downloaded from the league website. Please note: This form REQUIRES both a printed and signed signature.
Incorrectly completing the form will result in its deletion from the student’s registration, and therefore render the student ineligible to participate.
➜ Complete the “Pre-Participation Head Injury – Concussion Reporting Form,” which can be downloaded from the league website. Please note: This form REQUIRES both a printed and signed signature. Incorrectly completing the form will result in its deletion from the student’s registration, and therefore render the student ineligible to participate.
The EAA considers head injury a serious issue and require that student-athletes/parents:
➜ Report any head injury during the sport season to your Athletic Director/Principal and the EAA by filling out the “Concussion in the Season Report Form,” which can be downloaded from the website (see downloadable forms).
➜ Must complete and file the “Concussion Post Head Injury Clearance Form,” with your school’s Athletic Director/Principal and the EAA PRIOR to returning to participation in any EAA Program once medically declared to have suffered a head injury. This form can be downloaded from the website (see downloadable forms).
