Concussion Awareness

Hello All SCOG Members,

Important information from CJSA to all CT Soccer Players:

The Connecticut General Assembly passed a law regarding concussions in youth athletics. This new law requires that as of January 1, 2016, CJSA and each of its member clubs make available to each player and their parents or legal guardian, at the time of a player’s registration, a written or electronic statement regarding concussions. 

To assist our member clubs with this obligation, we have attached 2 files to assist you in this process.

  1. ​CJSA Concussion Cover Letter 2015 10 25 v1
  2. CJSA Concussion Awareness Form 2015 10 16 v1.2

Additional information can be found on www.cjsa.org

Concussion Information from the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association(CJSA)

November, 2015

U. S. Soccer indicates it will announce in the near future, specific details, including a number of new initiatives and recommendations concerning the modification of substitution rules and limitations on heading the ball as well as a more comprehensive player safety campaign. Click here for more information 

October, 2015

Effective January 1, 2016 each CJSA club is required to make available either a written or electronic statement regarding concussions to each youth athlete (i.e. all CJSA players) and the parent or legal guardian of each player participating in any youth athletic activity. The law requires that this written or electronic information be made available at the time of registration of each player and must be consistent with the most recent information provided by the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding concussions.
