Why Read This

A concussion management plan is critical in ensuring student athlete safety and reducing liability risks. The NCAA requires higher education institutions to have a plan on file, and all 50 states have established concussion management standards for youth sports. College and K-12 school administrators can use this checklist, which includes:

  • A protocol for pre-participation, documentation, and response
  • Concussion signs and symptoms to include in a management plan
  • Roles of athletics health care providers and coaches
  • Minimum requirements for concussion education, training, and resources
