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.

Risk Management -- Presentations

Risk Management is a job that never ends. It is Disclosure Forms and Background Checks – making every effort to provide a safe environment for every player. But, it is also protecting coaches, administrators, parents and spectators. Risk Management is everything from goal safety to fiscal responsibility.

Education is our most important tool and this page will link you to power point presentations with scripts and hand-outs you can use.

Some presentations below are large files. Please be patient and allow time for them to download.

              

The Vigilant Parent
Presentation
 

This power point was first presented at the 2007 adidas convention. It gives an overview of the types of pedophiles, strategies to protect youth and to educate parents.


              

TOPsoccer and Recreation
Presentation 

The coaches and players involved in Recreational and TOPSoccer truly make Region IV soccer the game for all kids! This power point and script will help you deal with some of the issues in these programs. Also included is a file that can be used to create a card the size of player card to give you new coaches and administrators to remind them of some of the most important safety concerns. They can keep it on the ring with their player cards as an important reminder of good practices.

Risk Management -- Handouts

Risk Management is a job that never ends. It is Disclosure Forms and Background Checks – making every effort to provide a safe environment for every player. But, it is also protecting coaches, administrators, parents and spectators. Risk Management is everything from goal safety to fiscal responsibility.

Card for Coaches
HANDOUT

This word doc will print 4 cards with Risk Management reminders. It can be cut, folded and laminated to go on the coach's card ring -- it's the same size as a player card!


              

Goal Safety
HANDOUT

Here's a quick, simple handout that highlights how to deal with one of our biggest challenges -- making goals safe.


              

15-Passenger Van Safety
HANDOUT

The Federal Government bans school districts from using them, yet 15-passenger (and 12-passenger) vans are used by many teams. Mini-vans are a better choice. Here's an overview of the risks and how to deal with them.


              

Golf Cart Safety
HANDOUT

They seem like fun -- but they can be a hazard. Help your tournaments and leagues practice golf cart safety.


              

Weather Safety
HANDOUT

This was prepared by Oregon Soccer and in some places reflects their policies - but it's got lots of good information on being safe in any kind of weather. Please note, a lightning detection system is more reliable that the "sound" method and I know many tournaments, clubs, leagues, city parks, etc. are using them. If you don't have a detection system, and use the "flash-bang" formula always err on the side of being more cautious - storms can move rapidly.
