Know the Signs and Symptoms...Please review the Head Injury Information Sheet below. It offers signs and symptoms of concussions. Please note that most concussions do not occur with loss of consciousness. If your child reports any symptoms of a concussion, or you observe any signs of a concussion yourself; please seek the guidance of the assigned district athletic trainer or medical assistance. You also need to inform your coach.
