Minnesota Youth Athletic Concussion Policies

Minnesota law now requires organizations that organize and charge a fee for youth athletic activities to:

  • provide information about concussions to coaches, officials, youth athletes and parents;
  • require all coaches and officials to receive annual concussion training.

A coach or official must remove a youth athlete from the athletic activity if the youth athlete exhibits signs, symptoms, or behaviors consistent with a concussion or is suspected of sustaining a concussion.

The youth athlete can return to play once:

  • he/she is evaluated by a trained provider and the provider gives them written permission to return to the activity; and
  • the provider develops a plan to aid the youth athlete in recovering and resuming participation in athletic activities and academics that is
    • coordinated with periods of cognitive and physical rest while symptoms persist; and
    • reintroduces cognitive and physical demands on the young person on a progressive basis only.
