The board of SYSA considers the health and safety of our children as its top priority; and in keeping with that we have the following policy . Our coaches are completing a concussion awareness class and the safety of the players will be the most important factor in deciding if a player returns to a game after suffering a collision. We want our parents to be aware of the risks associated with concussions and other injuries. Because of these risks a coach may sit a player out and ask parents to get a child evaluated by a medical professional after an injury. SYSA will stand behind a coaches decision to pull a player out of a practice or game due to an injury. We will also require the parent to submit a medical clearance from a doctor prior to their return to participation. This document will need to be submitted to both the players coach and the SYSA Safety Coordinator. If you have any questions or concerns please email the BOD.
