Tennessee Concussion & Sudden Cardiac Law
Tennessee General Assembly has passed the Concussion & Sudden Cardiac Prevention Act. This act requires that school and community organizations sponsoring youth athletic activities establish guidelines to inform and educate coaches, youth athletes and other adults involved in youth athletics about the nature, risk and symptoms of concussion and head injury. Coaches, Student-Athletes and Parents must complete these requirements annually. Additional info: www.sciaa.digitalsports.com/health
