Concussions in Youth Athletes - Iowa


The Iowa law is located at section 280.13C of the Iowa Code under the title dealing with education and the chapter on school district and uniform requirements. (Iowa Code § 280.13C)

Iowa law requires the state high school athletic association to distribute information to parents, coaches, students and others on concussions and requires school districts to annually provide forms to parents/guardians on concussions to be signed and returned to the school prior to any athletic participation by the student. Finally, any student suspected of sustaining a concussion must be immediately removed from the activity and cannot return until they have been evaluated by a licensed health care professional and received written clearance to play.
