Concussion Policy

As a manner to help educate and protect our players from injury Hopkinton Youth Soccer has adopted the following policy as it relates to concussions and players who receive a trauma to the head during a game or practice, or who exhibit signs/symptoms of a concussion:

Any player that receives a hit or trauma to the head, or exhibits signs, symptoms or behavior consistent with a concussion shall not return to a game or practice until cleared by a healthcare professional.  Coaches may not allow a player to return until a note is provided by such professional. The player’s safety is top priority
