Concussion Training

In April 2013, Tennessee became the 44th state to pass a sports concussion law designed to reduce youth sports concussions and increase awareness of traumatic brain injury. The legislation, Public Chapter 148, has three key components:

  • To inform and educate coaches, youth athletes and their parents and require them to sign a concussion information form before competing.

  • To require removal of a youth athlete who appears to have suffered a concussion from play or practice at the time of the suspected concussion.


  • To require a youth athlete to be cleared by a licensed health care professional before returning to play or practice.


Both public and private school sports and recreational leagues for children under age 18 that require a fee are affected by the new law. The law covers all sports. This website (http://www.tn.gov/health/article/tbi-concussion) contains all of the resources coaches, youth athletes, and parents need to fulfill the intent of the law.
