Coach Landolfi – Hanover High School Head Football
Hard Work
Concussions are a parents biggest concern. The OCYFL
has partnered with the CDC and the NFL’s Head’s Up
Football Program.
We are following their guidelines and
recommendations as our league wide policy
» A concussion is a brain injury – All are serious!
» Most concussions occur without loss of consciousness!
» Athletes who have had a concussion, at any point in their
lives, have a greater chance of getting another concussion!
» Young children and teens are more likely to get a concussion
and can take longer to recover than adults!
» Recognizing and responding properly to concussions when
they first occur can help prevent further injury!
» 3 Step Action Plan
1. Educate coaches, parents, and athletes
2. Remove athlete from play
3. Obtain permission from a health care professional to
return to play
» Be ready for an emergency
» Ensure safer play
