CONCUSSIONS - POLICY (March 2017) 

If the referee believes a player may have sustained a concussion, the player will be told to leave the match and may not return to play. Players, coaches and parents must NOT dispute the decision! NVYSL referees have received concussion education and have been instructed to err on the side of caution.  Concussions may occur even without a direct blow to the head and symptoms may not be immediately apparent. You can review the concussion training at the following:
