The below information is still in place.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services requires that all high schools subject to the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) rules adhere to the following Massachusetts General Law 111:
Student‐athletes and their parents, coaches, athletic directors, school nurses, and physicians must learn about the consequences of head injuries and concussions through training programs and written materials. The law requires that athletes and their parents inform their coaches about prior head injuries at the beginning of the season (See item H. of section III page 2 of the permission form). If a student athlete becomes unconscious, or is suspected of having a concussion, during a game or practice, the law now mandates taking the student out of play or practice, and requires written certification from a licensed medical professional for “return to play.”
Parents and student-athletes who plan to participate in any sports program at Archbishop Williams High School must also take one free online course about concussions per school year. Two free online courses have been made available and contain all the information required by the law.
The first online course option is offered through the National Federation of High School Coaches. You will need to click the “order here” button and complete a brief information form to register. At the end of the course, you will receive a completion receipt. The entire course, including registration, can be completed in less than 30 minutes:
The second online course option is offered through the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention at: CDC.gov Online Concussion Course
All athletes must have completed the on line registration form and provide a copy of a recent physical (within 13 months of 26 Oct 2011) on file with the athletic office prior to the first day of seasonal tryouts in order to be allow to participate.
