New UIL Concussion Guidelines (Effective 2011-2012)

Concussions received by participants in sports activities are an ongoing concern at all levels. Recent interest and research in this area has prompted reevaluations of treatment and management recommendations from the high school to the professional level. Numerous agencies and associations throughout the United States responsible for developing guidelines addressing the management of concussion in high school student-athletes have developed or revised their guidelines for concussion management.The present document will update the UIL requirements for concussion management in student athletes participating in activities under the jurisdiction of the UIL and will also provide information on compliance with Chapter 38. Sub Chapter D of the Texas Education Code (TEC). For more information concerning the new UIL concussion guidelines and return-to-play protocol click on http://www.uiltexas.org/health/info/concussions

STOP Sports Injuries: Interesting and Informative Website for Parents and Coaches of Young Athletes.

There is a growing epidemic of preventable youth sports injuries that are dismantling kids' athletic hopes and dreams at an early age. In response, the STOP Sports Injuries campaign was created by a coalition of organizations and corporations to help prevent athletic overuse and trauma injuries in kids. In addition, a Council of Champions has been established that includes business, sports and medical leaders to bring this message to and actively engage youth sports parents, coaches, athletes and healthcare providers. If you are interested in learning more about sports injuries and the pediatric athlete this is a website that is worth examining.
