NEW JERSEY YOUTH SOCCER CONCUSSION PROTOCOL

NJ Youth Soccer has adopted the US Youth Soccer Concussion Protocol for its events (e.g. ODP and State Cups).  We encourage member clubs to utilize the form and related protocol.  A link with education and related form appears on our website CLICK HERE

The link to the documentation/form for this recommended protocol can also be found by clicking on NJ Youth Soccer Concussion Protocol and is summarized below.

  • Pages 1 and 2 are retained by the parent as education and information.
  • Page 3 is signed by the appropriate individuals and retained by the team/club.
  • Club advised to retain the form for record keeping and reference.
  • Referee can advise the coach and recommend that a player is evaluated.
  • The coach, who has completed concussion training, is the individual who initiates the protocol.

NJ Youth Soccer shares this additional information to help Leagues, Clubs and parents manage player safety.
