    Concussion Statement:

    The NHIAA mandates the following of the NFHS guidelines for management of Concussions.

    Concussions: Any athlete who exhibits signs, symptoms, or behaviors consistent with a concussion (such as loss of consciousness, headache, dizziness, confusion, or balance problems) shall be immediately removed from the contest and shall not return to play until cleared by an appropriate health care professional.

    Please visit www.nhiaa.org; “What’s New” to view the NFHS Guidelines for Management of Concussions and the New Hampshire SB402 and its language as written.

    Remember, DO NOT say we think they may have a concussion.  

     

    Sect. 1: Medical Coverage at Athletic Events

    The importance of the long-range safety of high school athletes cannot be overstated. Consequently, the NHIAA and its member schools will favor medical safety over any other countervailing concerns including competitive advantage. Every high school in New Hampshire must make provisions for licensed medical personnel at all practices and contests. The types of provisions that are acceptable are (the provisions are in alphabetical order, not preferential order):

    1. Athletic Trainer

    2. Board Certified Sports Physical Therapist

    3. Emergency Medical Technician

    4. Nurse

    5. Nurse Practitioner

    6. Physician

    7. Physician Assistant

    8. Systems developed to call medical personnel to the site of the athletic event

    At the athletic competitions where medical coverage is either provided or mandated by the NHIAA, injuries sustained by athletes will be evaluated by the designated medical personnel. The clearance to re-enter competition after an injury will be made by the designated medical personnel only. Absent unanimous agreement between the designated medical personnel to allow continued participation, an injured player will not be allowed to return to the game. Their decision is final and cannot be overturned by the coach, coaching staff, parents/guardians, or any non-designated personnel.
