On January 1, 2014, a new Oregon law, Senate Bill 721, took effect. This law affects all sports league coaches (including managers), league governing bodies, nonschool athletic teams (which are teams with persons under age 18 and not affiliated with a public school in Oregon), and governing bodies and umpires.

The law mandates that each league governing body and each umpire governing body must ensure that the coaches, managers and umpires “receive annual training to learn how to recognize the symptoms of a concussion and how to seek proper medical treatment for a person suspected of having a concussion,” and follow certain guidelines when a concussion is suspected. “Training to learn how to recognize the symptoms of a concussion and how to seek proper medical treatment for a person suspected of having a concussion” is now required annually.

Also, a coach or a manager may not allow a minor to participate if a minor player exhibits signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion following an observed or suspected blow to the head or body, or has been diagnosed with a concussion. The player must not be allowed to participate until at least one day after the player experienced a blow to the head or body and only after the member no longer exhibits signs, symptoms, or behaviors consistent with a concussion, and after the player receives a medical release from a health care professional.

Senate Bill 721 also states that “an umpire may not allow a member of a non-school athletic team to participate in any athletic event during which the member exhibited signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion following an observed or suspected blow to the head or body.” Please assist the umpire by supporting them in the execution of the requirements of SB 721

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
