Tennessee Athletic Association Adapts New Concussion Policy

The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association has adapted a new concussion policy for coaches, athletes, parents and officials for the upcoming school year.

The association wants officials at every member school to know the symptoms and what steps to take when a student displays signs of a possible concussion. They want officials to meet with coaches immediately and to share information with parents and students before the upcoming school year.

In my view the policy does not go far enough.  Without requiring a mandatory restriction from further participation in the game following a concussion or a suspected concussion and a mandatory medical screening before student athletes are allowed to return to play the policy does not provide sufficient protection to the students.
