WYH Concussion Protocol

USA Hockey requires that if a player exhibits any signs symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion, or is suspected of sustaining a concussion that they be immediately removed from any training practice or game.

Beginning with the 2019-20 season, any athlete held out for concussion evaluation or who has been diagnosed with a concussion must provide a written Return to Play form from a qualified medical provider allowing them to return to any training, practice or game activity with no restrictions. 

The parent must sign the form and the coach must also sign the form acknowledging that they received it. 

Once the coach has received the form, they must place it in an envelope, labelled Attention: WYH SafeSport Coordinator and place the envelope in the WYH Board Mailbox located next to the Board Room.

If a player has received a concussion through another sport, coaches should request a letter from their qualified medical provider clearing them for unrestricted activity.
