Concussions in Youth Athletes - Minnesota


The Minnesota law is located at §121A.37 and §121A.38 of the Minnesota Code, as part of the education code and the chapter on student rights, responsibilities and behavior. (Minn. Stat. §§ 121A.37 trough 121A.38).

Section 121A.37 of the Minnesota law requires that any organization that organizes youth sports activities for which any fee is charged must make information about concussions available to coaches, parents and youth athletes. This section also mandates concussion training for all participating coaches and officials once every three (3) years consistent with this law and the CDC web site. Coaches are required to remove a player suspected of sustaining a concussion and the player may not return until evaluated by a medical professional and given written clearance. Section 121A.38 provides definitions of the important terms in the previous section and also delineates rules and procedures for concussions in school-based or school-sponsored sports which are substantially similar to the requirements under 121A.37.

The official versions of these sections are currently available online at:
