Description

Current law states that if a youth athlete is removed from play
because a coach suspects the youth athlete has sustained a concussion in
a game, competition, or practice, the coach or other designated personnel
shall not permit the youth athlete to return to play or participate in any

supervised team activities involving physical exertion until the youth
athlete is evaluated by a health care provider and receives written
clearance to return to play from the health care provider. The bill adds
licensed physical therapists to the definition of health care provider for
this purpose.
