Concussion Education

Print Email

Louisiana has passed legislation that requires youth sports organizations to notify its participants (players/parents/coaches) of the symptoms of concussions and the risks with continuing to participate with a possible concussion. LSA has prepared the below documents to help you meet the requirements of Louisiana Act 314 (legislation passed in regards to concussion education in youth sports).



  1. LSA Informed Consent about Concussions for parents/players – mandatory (if you would like this language incorporated into your Got Soccer online registration, let Jennifer Davis know)

  2. LSA Concussion Notification Form – to be used at your tournaments/practices/games when a possible concussion is suspected (not required by law; provided for your information & use if you wish to document incidents); LSA uses this form at all State tournaments

  3. Concussion Procedure and Protocol to go with the above notification form; again, this is not required by law but is followed at all LSA state tournaments

  4. Act 314 – Louisiana Concussion Act


Going forward you will need to use the LSA informed consent form for parents/players or use a club-developed form that contains similar content.

Coaches have their concussion education requirement incorporated into our risk management/disclosure online in Got Soccer in order to meet the requirements of the LA Statute. If you would like a hard copy of this concussion education language for coaches, let us know.
