There's a lively discussion going on SOCREF-L about legislation pending in Ohio that would require youth soccer referees (among others) to be trained/certified on concussion evaluation. Meanwhile, here's a very interesting NY Times article about the ongoing NFL concussion litigation and the trickle-down effects it might have on sports generally, including youth sports. What do you guys do in a typical youth club match when players bang heads hard, shake it off, and say they're OK and want to continue to play? Other thoughts on the subject generally? Here's an AP article about the new Ohio rules: "Coaches and referees who are responsible for removing players with concussion symptoms must complete an online concussion education course every three years."
