NOTICE OF CONCUSSION INJURY POLICY IMPLEMENTATION AND ACKNOWLEDGMENT
Effective May 10,2011, Utah Code § 26-53-101 et seq. requires all amateur sports organizations to adopt and enforce a concussion and head injury policy. The City of Orem (City) recognizes that concussions and head injuries can result from contact in sports and have serious consequences if not properly evaluated and treated. Therefore, consistent with state law, the City has adopted its Concussion and Traumatic Head Injury Policy (Policy) in order to educate and to establish a plan of action for coaches, teachers, employees, representatives, or volunteers of the City (Agents) when a player (defined as an individual under the age of 18 years) suffers or is suspected of suffering a concussion during a sporting event.
