MIAA, state adopt rules on concussions, bullying

posted Sep 8, 2010, 12:08 PM by Mass TFOA
During the summer, the Mass. Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) and the Commonwealth adopted rules concerning head injuries and concussions. In addition, the state passed legislation against bullying and hazing. 

The new concussion legislation defines the protocols for the identification of student athletes with brain injury concerns, plus the protocols for allowing the athlete to return to competition. While the legislation was targeted for Sept. 1 implementation, the state Department of Health, MIAA and other organizations are formulating detailed regulations. 

MTFOA advises all officials to read the new rules and legislation, copies of which are attached to this post.
