Section V Athletics

Concussion Management Information

Mission Statement:

The New York State Athletic Administrators Association, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association
and Section V have partnered to educate interscholastic athletic personnel, secondary school athletes, parents of the athletes,
school nurses and school physicians in current sport concussion management policies and procedures. Recognizing the
concussed athlete, applying the guidelines for appropriate response, understanding the dangers of inappropriate actions
and following correct protocols for return to school and athletic participation will be outcomes of the educational process.
As a result, the number of New York State scholastic athletes suffering from post concussion syndrome; or secondary
impact syndrome will significantly decrease.
