Spokane Youth Hockey Concussion Information Acknowledgement
A concussion is a brain injury and all brain injuries are serious. They are caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head, or by a blow to another part of the body. Concussions can range from mild to sever and can disrupt the way the brain normally works. Even though most concussions are mild, all concussions are potentially serious and may result in complications including prolonged brain damage and death if not recognized and managed properly. In other words, even a “ding” or bump to the head can be serious. You can’t see a concussion and most sports concussions occur without loss of consciousness. Signs and symptoms of concussion may show up right after the injury or can take hours or days to fully appear. If your child reports any symptoms of concussion, or if you notice the symptoms or signs of concussion yourself, seek medical attention right away.
Symptoms may include one or more of the following:
-“Pressure in the head”
-Nausea or vomiting
-Balance problems or dizziness
-Blurred, double or fuzzy vision
-Sensitivity to light or noise
-Feeling sluggish or slowed down
-Feeling foggy or groggy
-Change in sleep patterns
-“Don’t feel right”
-Fatigue or low energy
-Nervousness or anxiety
-Concentration or memory problems (forgetting game plays)
-Repeating the same question/comment
Signs observed by teammates, parents and coaches may include:
-Vacant facial expression
-Confused about assignment
-Is unsure of game, score or opponent
-Moves clumsily or displays incoordination
-Answers questions slowly
-Shows behavior or personality changes
-Can’t recall events prior to hit
-Can’t recall events after hit
-Seizures or convulsions
-Any change in typical behavior or personality

What can happen if my child keeps on playing with a concussion or returns too soon?
Athletes with the signs and symptoms of concussion should be removed from play immediately. Continuing to play with the signs and symptoms of a concussion leaves the young athlete especially vulnerable to greater injury. There is an increased risk of significant damage from a concussion for a period of time after that concussion occurs, particularly if the athlete suffers another concussion before completely recovering from the first one. This can lead to prolonged recovery, or even to severe brain swelling (second impact syndrome) with devastating and even fatal consequences. It is well known that adolescent or teenage athletes will often under report symptoms of injuries. Concussions are no different. As a result, education of administrators, coaches, parents and students is the key for youth athlete safety.
What to do if you think your child has suffered a concussion.
An athlete with a suspected concussion should be removed from the game or practice immediately. The suspected concussion should be reported to your child’s coach and coaching director if you think that your child may have a concussion. An Accident Report Form should be filled out with the details surrounding the incident and submitted immediately to Spokane Youth Hockey. Close observation of the athlete should continue for several hours. No athlete may return to activity after an apparent head injury or concussion – regardless of how mild it seems or how quickly symptoms clear – without clearance from a licensed medical professional. This signed Release Form must be returned to Spokane Youth Hockey with the appropriate signatures before a player will be allowed to return to play.
This Spokane Youth Hockey policy complies with the Zackery Lystedt Law in Washington state that requires the consistent and uniform implementation of long and well-established return to play concussion guidelines, namely that “a young athlete who is suspected of sustaining a concussion or head injury in a practice or game shall be removed from competition at that time” and “may not return to play until the athlete is evaluated by a licensed health care provider trained in the evaluation and management of concussion and received written clearance to return to play from that health care provider.”
When in doubt, the athlete sits out. Remember, it’s better to miss one game than to miss the whole season.
