Managing Player Concussions
If a player has been removed from participation due to demonstrating signs, symptoms, or behaviors consistent with a head injury they must immediately begin the concussion clearance process.
A player must present the UYSA Concussion Clearance Form to their club prior to returning to play. Clubs are responsible for processing the clearance in SOMS and keeping record.

Concussion Awareness & Safety
Utah House Bill 204 "The Protection of Athletes with Head Injuries Act", effective as of May 10, 2011, requires amateur sports organizations to adopt and enforce a concussion head injury policy. The policy will ensure the consistent and uniform implementation of a well-established concussion management program and return to play guidelines.
