MEDICAL CLEARANCE MUST BE GIVEN PRIOR TO RETURN TO PLAY.
The OATA strongly encourages concussion management be under the supervision of a professional sport health practitioner such as a sport physician, certified athletic therapist and or a neuropsychologist. Any Athlete suspected of having a concussion should be removed from play, medically assessed, monitored for deterioration (ex. not left alone) and should not operate a motor vehicle.
