Illinois Concussion Law
On July 28, 2011, Illinois Gov. Patrick Quinn signed a measure that states student athletes with concussions must get medical approval before resuming play. The law also requires education for coaches, parents, referees and players about concussion symptoms. Studies show that repeat concussions and returning to play too soon raises risks for permanent brain damage. The IHSA requires every school to have a signed concussion form on file for each student-athlete. Community High School District 218 will comply with this mandate. A concussion sheet identifying symptoms of concussion is available online. Scroll down to Bulldog Documents to download this form. Any questions regarding this law, please contact our athletic trainer, Mike Vari, at 708.424.2550, Ext. 5735, after 2:30 p.m.
National High School Coaches Association (NHSCA)
National High School Coaches Association developed a special website to assist all high school student athletes that are planning to attend college and possibly continue their athletic career. The website is free and has everything the student athlete needs to know from start to finish. The website addresses admission procedures, financial aid, required state and federal forms, work study jobs, different types of scholarships, as well as NCAA recruiting rules, NCAA compliance, etc. There are also many tips that will assist the student athlete in dealing with college visits.
