Concussion Policy Update
Matoaca Youth Athletics, in partnership with Chesterfield County, will be adopting changes to the programs concussion policy effective July 1, 2014. Below we have provided a few links to help our Parents/Athletes better understand the symptoms and risks associated with TBI's. Stay tuned for more updates.
Every year in the United States, more than 173,000 athletes up to age 19 are treated for sports and recreation-related Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs), many of which are concussions. Children and teens are more likely to get a concussion and take longer to recover than adults. And the bad news is that TBI occurrences continue to rise.
Effective July 1, 2014, the Virginia General Assembly approved an amendment to § 22.1-271.5 of the Code of Virginia regarding concussions. With this new ruling, Chesterfield County now requires all organized groups providing youth recreation programs, athletic instruction or events on county facilities be required to have a concussion policy that either (i) follows the local school division policy, (ii) meets the standards of the Board of Education or (iii) creates one that meets a follows the established guidelines. A copy of the amended law appears later in this manual.
Compliance with this law will now be a condition for co-sponsorship and applies to use of school facilities and parks and recreation facilities. “Non-interscholastic youth sports program” refers to any organized recreational program offering athletic competition or athletic instruction for youth.
