Please be advised that after a player receives a completed US Youth Soccer Concussion Form due to displaying signs and symptoms of a concussion, that player may not return to play until a signed clearance form from a medical doctor or doctor of osteopath who specializes in concussion treatment and management has been received. Please refer to the form for further details.
For clarification, whether an M.D. or D.O., the physician must specialize in concussion treatment and management.
The clearance must be on a document from the medical doctor's office stating that the player has been cleared to return to play and is clear of symptoms. The document must be signed by the official.
If a player is cleared during the event, please notify your State Rep and bring the signed clearance to the event headquarters.
If a player is cleared post-event, please contact the US Youth Soccer National Office at 972-334-9300.
