NFHS Supports Proposed Concussion Legislation

The National Federation of State High School Associations supports the recently introduced Youth Sports Concussion Act (S.1014) sponsored by Senators Jay Rockefeller and Tom Udall. The legislation promotes improved national quality standards for injury-prevention equipment used in youth sports.

The bill's key operative provisions will be triggered by an upcoming National Academies of Science (NAS) report focusing on concussions in youth sports. The report will catalogue existing studies on topics including the long-term effects of repeated impact, the effectiveness of current equipment regulations, and injury treatment options. The goal of the review is to provide specific guidance to sporting organizations and athletics personnel, while simultaneously identifying areas where more research is required. Read more here.
