This page provides information and guidelines on player safety.

Concussion Protocol

On June 8, 2011, Minnesota Governor Dayton signed a new bill into law that requires all coaches to sideline athletes who show signs of a concussion. Those athletes cannot return to the field until they are cleared by a state licensed medical health care provider.

Additional information can be found on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website.

Heat Index

Coaches will use the Heat Index Guide to determine if/when it is appropriate to practice or play games on days with high heat.
