Update! The latest information on Concussions, Child Abuse Reporting, and State Background Checks

Twice a year, in January and June, Little League® provides updates to the state statutes affecting player safety throughout the program. The current information about concussions, child abuse reporting and state background check laws is available on LittleLeague.org.

Also, Little League has released new information from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) with regards to concussions, and a microsite that leagues can add to their own websites for up-to-date information.

For leagues in Connecticut and Illinois, there have been significantly amendments to their Concussion state laws since the last update in June 2015.

Here is a sample of the concussion-related materials that is available on the Concussion overview page on the Little League website.
