AMATEUR ATHLETIC WAIVER AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY


BY CLICKING AGREE BELOW I ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING:

In consideration of participation in the SACRAMENTO YOUTH FOOTBALL (Oakmont Jr. Vikings/SYF) league (its member team’s football and cheer programs), related practices and events, and the many benefits received in this conditional privilege, the undersigned agrees, understands, appreciates, and covenants as follows:

  • I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE that the risk of injury from the activities involved in Oakmont Jr. Vikings/SYF are significant due their physicality, aggressive nature, including but not limited to the potential and risk of the following: (1) falls, sprains, ligament damage, broken bones, paralysis, neck/spine and back injury, and even sudden death; (2)intentional and unintentional contact with other players or coaches; (3) injuries associated with extreme heat, humidity, cold and other uncertain weather conditions inherent in a game played outdoors; (4) concussions and head and brain injures (I have read the Concussion Information Sheet and the Concussion Management and Return to Play Protocol sheet-both available on the Oakmont Jr. Vikings/SYF website, understanding that the science, factors, and symptoms of concussions remains uncertain and changing).
  • I FURTHER UNDERSTAND AND AGREE that while particular rules, training of all concerned, properly fitted and certified helmets and equipment may reduce these risks, the risk of serious injuries still does exist. The uncertainty and risks of injury are great since Oakmont Jr. Vikings/SYF football and cheer programs are operated by many volunteers and untrained persons with limited resources and training.
  • I UNDERSTAND AND FREELY ASSUME ALL RISKS BOTH KNOWN AND UNKNOWN AND ASSUME FULL RESPONSIBILITY. I assume these risks due to the many significant benefits associated with participation in Oakmont Jr. Vikings/SYF including but not limited to life lessons/skills, discipline, accountability, skill development, team and friendship building, confidence, and a strong work ethic.
  • I FURTHER UNDERSTAND AND AGREE that my child will be ineligible for the first two games of the season if transferring from one youth program to another, unless approved by Oakmont Jr. Vikings/SYF commissioner or meets CIF transfer eligibility rules (i.e. residential move into gaining boundary). I also AGREE to comply with all stated, customary terms, and conditions for participation by Oakmont Jr. Vikings/SYF and its teams. I consent, for no compensation, to the use of my (or my child=s) name, image, or likeness in any video, advertising, promotion, or review by Oakmont Jr. Vikings/SYF and its member teams.

SACRAMENTO YOUTH FOOTBALL
CIF CONCUSSION INFORMATION SHEET


BY CLICKING AGREE BELOW I ACKNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING:

Why am I getting this information sheet?
You are receiving this information sheet about concussions because of California state law AB 25 (effective January 1, 2012), now Education Code § 49475:

  1. The law requires a student athlete who may have a concussion during a practice or game to be removed from the activity for the remainder of the day.
  2. Any athlete removed for this reason must receive a written note from a medical doctor trained in the management of concussion before returning to practice.
  3. Before an athlete can start the season and begin practice in a sport, a concussion information sheet must be signed and returned to the school by the athlete and the parent or guardian.
  4. Every 2 years all coaches are required to receive training about concussions (AB 1451), as well as certification in First Aid training, CPR, and AEDs (life-saving electrical devices that can be used during CPR).

What is a concussion and how would I recognize one?
A concussion is a kind of brain injury. It can be caused by a bump or hit to the head, or by a blow to another part of the body with the force that shakes the head. Concussions can appear in any sport, and can look differently in each person.

Most concussions get better with rest and over 90% of athletes fully recover. However, all concussions should be considered serious. If not recognized and managed the right way, they may result in problems including brain damage and even death.

Most concussions occur without being knocked out. Signs and symptoms of concussion (see back of this page) may show up right after the injury or can take hours to appear. If your child reports any symptoms of concussion or if you notice some symptoms and signs, seek medical evaluation from your team’s athletic trainer and a medical doctor trained in the evaluation and management of concussion. If your child is vomiting, has a severe headache, or is having difficulty staying awake or answering simple questions, call 911 to take him or her immediately to the emergency department of your local hospital.

On the CIF website is a Graded Concussion Symptom Checklist. If your child fills this out after having had a concussion, it helps the doctor, athletic trainer or coach understand how he or she is feeling and hopefully shows improvement. We ask that you have your child fill out the checklist at the start of the season even before a concussion has occurred so that we can understand if some symptoms such as headache might be a part of his or her everyday life. We call this a “baseline” so that we know what symptoms are normal and common for your child. Keep a copy for your records, and turn in the original. If a concussion occurs, he or she should fill out this checklist daily. This Graded Symptom Checklist provides a list of symptoms to compare over time to make sure the athlete is recovering from the concussion.

What can happen if my child keeps playing with concussion symptoms or returns too soon after getting a concussion?
Athletes with the signs and symptoms of concussion should be removed from play immediately. There is NO same day return to play for a youth with a suspected concussion. Youth athletes may take more time to recover from concussion and are more prone to long-term serious problems from a concussion. Even though a traditional brain scan (e.g., MRI or CT) may be “normal”, the brain has still been injured. Animal and human research studies show that a second blow before the brain has recovered can result in serious damage to the brain. If your athlete suffers another concussion before completely recovering from the first one, this can lead to prolonged recovery (weeks to months), or even to severe brain swelling (Second Impact Syndrome) with devastating consequences.

There is an increasing concern that head impact exposure and recurrent concussions may contribute to long-term neurological problems. One goal of this concussion program is to prevent a too early return to play so that serious brain damage can be prevented.

Signs observed by teammates, parents and coaches include:

  • Looks dizzy
  • Slurred speech
  • Looks spaced out
  • Shows a change in personality or way of acting
  • Confused about plays
  • Can’t recall events before or after the injury
  • Forgets plays
  • Seizures or has a fit
  • Is unsure of game, score, or opponent
  • Any change in typical behavior or personality
  • Moves clumsily or awkwardly
  • Passes out
  • Answers questions slowly

Symptoms may include one or more of the following:

  • Headaches
  • Loss of memory
  • Pressure in head
  • Doesn’t feel right
  • Nausea or throws up
  • Tired or low energy
  • Neck pain
  • Sadness
  • Has trouble standing or walking
  • Nervousness or feeling on edge
  • Blurred, double, or fuzzy vision
  • Irritability
  • Bothered by light or noise
  • More emotional
  • Feeling sluggish or slowed down
  • Confused
  • Feeling foggy or groggy
  • Concentration or memory problems
  • Drowsiness
  • Repeating the same question/comment
  • Change in sleep patterns

What is Return to Learn?
Following a concussion, student athletes may have difficulties with short- and long-term memory, concentration and organization. They will require rest while recovering from injury (e.g., avoid reading, texting, video games, loud movies), and may even need to stay home from school for a few days. As they return to school, the schedule might need to start with a few classes or a half-day depending on how they feel. If recovery from a concussion is taking longer than expected, they may also benefit from a reduced class schedule and/or limited homework; a formal school assessment may also be necessary. Your school or doctor can help suggest and make these changes. Student athletes should complete the Return to Learn guidelines and return to complete school before beginning any sports or physical activities, unless your doctor makes other recommendations. Go to the CIF website (cifstate.org) for more information on Return to Learn.

How is Return to Play (RTP) determined?
Concussion symptoms should be completely gone before returning to competition. A RTP progression involves a gradual, step-wise increase in physical effort, sports-specific activities and the risk for contact. If symptoms occur with activity, the progression should be stopped. If there are no symptoms the next day, exercise can be restarted at the previous stage. RTP after concussion should occur only with medical clearance from a medical doctor trained in the evaluation and management of concussions, and a step-wise progression program monitored by an athletic trainer, coach, or other identified school administrator. Please see cifstate.org for a graduated return to play plan. [AB 2127, a California state law effective 1/1/15, states that return to play (i.e., full competition) must be no sooner than 7 days after the concussion diagnosis has been made by a physician.]

Final Thoughts for Parents and Guardians:
It is well known that high school athletes will often not talk about signs of concussions, which is why this information sheet is so important to review with them. Teach your child to tell the coaching staff if he or she experiences such symptoms, or if he or she suspects that a teammate has had a concussion. You should also feel comfortable talking to the coaches or athletic trainer about possible concussion signs and symptoms that you may be seeing in your child.
