Strict concussion rules issued for Pop Warner football
Posted on Wednesday, December 1st, 2010 at 8:44 am
Children who play in Pop Warner football leagues are now required to have a licensed medical professional that is trained in concussion recognition to clear them in order for them to be able to return to the playing field.
The youth football league has over 280,000 players across the nation. Young players are more susceptible to long term brain damage if they get a second concussion before the first one is healed. Therefore, if there is any chance that the child has a concussion, the proper evaluation must be done by a professional in order for the child to be be able to play again.
