Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, a person operating a youth athletic activity (defined as an
organized athletic activity in which the participants, a majority of whom are under
19 years of age, are engaged in an athletic game or competition against another team,
or in practice or preparation for such a game or competition) must distribute a
concussion and head injury information sheet to each coach and to each participant
in the activity. No person may participate in the activity unless the person returns
the sheet signed by the person and, if he or she is under 19 years of age, by his or her
parent.
This bill prohibits a person operating a youth athletic activity for which an
activity fee is charged from allowing an individual to serve as an official for the
activity unless the individual presents evidence satisfactory to the operator that he
or she has successfully completed, within the three previous years, an online training
program about concussions and head injuries in youth athletic activities that has
been approved by the Department of Public Instruction.
The bill takes effect approximately six months after publication.
