Student Athletes Learn More About Effects Of Brain Injuries

 

With the spring sports season fast approaching, many athletes at Sturgeon Bay High School are catching up the new concussion laws and requirements.

Those requirements were discussed at a special meeting held recently at the high school.

Track athlete Erik Elliott says the meeting was very informational and that the most interesting part was the concussion awareness.

Sturgeon Bay High School Athletic Director Pat Blizel says the actions are being put into place after concerns were raised about student athletes and the effects of concussions. A recent study by the University of Rochester Medical Center found that within the past 10 years the number of children entering the hospital with concussion-related injures has more than doubled.

Blizel says students must fill out paperwork, have a physical every two years, and attend one of the three co-curricular meetings per year. Athletes must also participate in one concussion test every other year.
