STATE OF MICHIGAN PARENT & ATHLETE CONCUSSION INFORMATION
Michigan State Law requires operators of athletic activities for youth athletes to provide Sports Concussion Awareness Training through the following educational materials on the signs/symptoms and consequences of concussions to each youth athlete and their parents/guardians. Please initial below acknowledging receipt of the information. To learn more go to cdc.gov/concussion. (Content Source: CDC’s Heads Up Program.)

WHAT IS A CONCUSSION?
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that changes the way the brain normally works. A concussion is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth. Even a “ding,” “getting your bell rung,” or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious.

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF A CONCUSSION?

Signs and symptoms of concussion can show up right after the injury or may not appear or be noticed until days or weeks after the injury. If an athlete reports one or more symptoms of concussion after a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body, s/he should be kept out of play the day of the injury. The athlete should only return to play with permission from a health care professional experienced in evaluating for concussion.

SYMPTOMS REPORTED BY ATHLETE:
  • Headache or “pressure” in head 
  • Nausea or vomiting 
  • Balance problems or dizziness 
  • Double or blurry vision 
  • Sensitivity to light 
  • Sensitivity to noise 
  • Feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy, or groggy 
  • Concentration or memory problems 
  • Confusion 
  • Just not “feeling right” or is “feeling down”
SIGNS OBSERVED BY COACHING STAFF:
  • Appears dazed or stunned
  • Is confused about assignment or position
  • Forgets an instruction
  • Is unsure of game, score, or opponent
  • Moves clumsily
  • Answers questions slowly
  • Loses consciousness (even briefly)
  • Shows mood, behavior, or personality changes
  • Can’t recall events prior to hit or fall
  • Can’t recall events after hit or fall
CONCUSSION DANGER SIGNS
In rare cases, a dangerous blood clot may form on the brain in a person with a concussion and crowd the brain against the skull. An athlete should receive immediate medical attention if after a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body s/he exhibits any of the following danger signs: 
  • One pupil larger than the other
  • Is drowsy or cannot be awakened
  • A headache that gets worse
  • Weakness, numbness, or decreased coordination
  • Repeated vomiting or nausea
  • Slurred speech
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Cannot recognize people or places
  • Becomes increasingly confused, restless, or agitated
  • Has unusual behavior
  • Loses consciousness (even a brief loss of consciousness should be taken seriously)
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU THINK YOUR ATHLETE HAS A CONCUSSION?
  1. If you suspect that an athlete has a concussion, remove the athlete from play and seek medical attention. Do not try to judge the severity of the injury yourself. Keep the athlete out of play the day of the injury and until a health care professional, experienced in evaluating for concussion, says s/he is symptom-free and it’s OK to return to play.
  2. Rest is key to helping an athlete recover from a concussion. Exercising or activities that involve a lot of concentration, such as studying, working on the computer, and playing video games, may cause concussion symptoms to reappear or get worse. After a concussion, returning to sports and school is a gradual process that should be carefully managed and monitored by a health care professional. 
  3. Remember: Concussions affect people differently. While most athletes with a concussion recover quickly and fully, some will have symptoms that last for days, or even weeks. A more serious concussion can last for months or longer.
WHY SHOULD AN ATHLETE REPORT THEIR SYMPTOMS?
If an athlete has a concussion, his/her brain needs time to heal. While an athlete’s brain is still healing, s/he is much more likely to have another concussion. Repeat concussions can increase the time it takes to recover. In rare cases, repeat concussions in young athletes can result in brain swelling or permanent damage to their brain. They can even be fatal.

PARTICIPATION & AGREEMENT WAIVER
I understand that my child’s participation in the Program is voluntary and that as I condition of my child’s participation, I agree to comply with all Program requirements including, but not limited to: (a) accurately completing all registration forms in a timely manner, (b) ensuring that my child is aware of the Program’s standards of conduct; (c) and immediately notifying the Program Administrator of any concerns related to the health, safety or security of my child, other participants, or Program staff. 

I understand that as part of my child’s participation in the Program that there are dangers, hazards and inherent risks to which my child may be exposed, including the risk of serious physical injury, temporary or permanent disability, and death, as well as economic and property loss. I further realize that participating in the Program may involve risks and dangers, both known and unknown, and I have chosen to allow my child to take part in the Program. Therefore, I, and on behalf of my child, have determined that it is reasonable to accept all risk of injury, loss of life or damage to property arising out of training, preparing, participating, and traveling to or from the Program and I do voluntarily accept and assume those risks. I release the University of Michigan, its Board of Regents, Administration, Faculty, Staff, Graduate Students, and all other officers, directors, employees, volunteers and agents from any claims or liability arising from my child’s participation in the Program, provided that such claim is not due to the gross and sole negligence of the released parties. 

In the event of an accident or serious illness, I authorize representatives of the University to obtain medical treatment for my child. I hold harmless and agree to indemnify the University from any claims, causes of action, damages and/or liabilities, arising out of or resulting from said medical treatment. I further agree to accept full responsibility for any and all expenses, including medical expenses that may derive from any injuries to my Child that may occur during his/her participation in the Program. 

I also agree to indemnify the University and all of its employees and agents from any financial obligations or liabilities that my child may cause while participating in the Program, including attorney’s fees and court costs resulting from his/her misconduct, errors, or omissions. 

I acknowledge that University employees and its volunteers have undergone criminal background checks, but other participants of the event may not have undergone background check screening. As such, the University makes no assertions or assurances with respect to other participants.


I acknowledge that the adult chaperones for my child's school/organization are responsible for the supervision of my child during the Program. Accordingly, I understand that the University makes no assertions or assurances regarding background screening of the adult chaperones of other participants.


I give permission for the University to provide transportation of my child as a participant in the program, to and from all events under the supervision of Program staff. I understand that University of Michigan leased vehicles will be used to transport my child to and from Program events.
