Return to Play Law 143
Ohio Law 143 or the Return-To-Play Law will go into effect on April 26, 2013. Ohio Gov. John R. Kasich signed the state’s new youth concussion rules into law after passage by legislators. The law requires youth coaches, officials and referees to complete free, basic online training about concussions. All coaches (including assistants) and referees are required to take the online concussion course before April 26, 2013. At the present time only the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) certificate will be accepted by GAASA until faults in the Center for Disease Control system are fixed. NFHS online training course requires the applicant to view the entire training video before obtaining a certificate. NFHS course (http://www.nfhslearn.com/electiveDetail.aspx?courseID=38000) will give the GAASA and OYSAN the ability to verify the certificate when necessary. The NFHS online training video is free and requires very little time to complete.
All clubs are required to have their “Concussion Compliance” form on file with the league no later than April 26th.
