Concussion Protocol
Notice of Privacy Practices

High Incident Sports will be required to do baseline screening for concussions. These high incident teams include the following: Hockey (x5), Wrestling (Men and Women), Lacrosse, Taekwondo, Ski/Snowboarding, Equestrian, Figure Skating, Synchronized Skating, Triathlon, Cycling, Men’s Volleyball, and Beach Volleyball. For any other team it will be optional and will be done if requested from the coach.

Concussions are a serious medical condition that needs to have proper care and treatment like any other injury. In order to keep a patient from further harm or damage after a concussion it is imperative that the participant communicate with the athletic trainer regarding the head injury, no matter how minor. It is also important for other teammates and coaches to spot abnormal behavior and concussive symptoms and report them to the athletic trainer immediately. Hiding concussive symptoms, or continuing to play, in lieu of a head injury may lead to serious harm, further damage to the brain, and prolong recovery time.

An athlete diagnosed with a concussion will not return to play or travel with the team until they have been cleared by a Licensed Healthcare Provider (ex. ATC and Physician).

Notification of Injury/Symptoms:

Due to the serious nature of this injury and potential dangerous results of returning to activity, concussions need to be recognized and diagnosed as soon as possible. It is required that student-athletes be truthful and forthcoming about their symptoms as soon as they are present. If/when he or she is diagnosed with a concussion, the student-athlete must report symptoms each day until he or she is cleared for full activity by the Team Physician or designee.

The return to play progression is a 7-step process. At least 24 hours must pass before moving on to the next step. If symptoms return the athlete must go back a step. The steps are as follows:

  1. No Activity – Directly after being diagnosed with a concussion, the athlete should have total physical and mental rest. Once the student-athlete is asymptomatic at rest and concussion test scores are 95% or better than the baseline scores the athlete will progress to the next step.
  2. Active Recovery – At the discretion of the Athletic Trainer or supervising Team Physician, the athlete will begin supervised recovery exercises, but will not be permitted to do these exercises outside the supervision of the Athletic Trainer or other Sports Medicine staff. This protocol is outlined below in the section entitled “Active Recovery Protocol”.
  3. Light Aerobic Exercise – Walking, swimming, or biking while keeping heart rate below 70% of max.
  4. Sport-Specific Exercise – Basic low impact drills associated with the athlete’s sport. (No head impact activities)
  5. Non-Contact Training Drills – Progress to more complex drills, weight training is permitted.  
  6. Full Contact Practice – After receiving medical clearance, athlete may resume normal training activities.
  7. Return to Play

*This protocol will always be followed. No Exceptions!*
