HEAD INJURY & SAFETY INFORMATION


Red Devil Football Camps staff will manage head injuries, including suspected concussions, conservatively using the `ABC' (A-Assess the situation, B-Be alert for signs and symptoms, C-Contact a health care professional) recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This includes immediate removal of a camp participant from play upon sustaining a head injury and using appropriate field clinical techniques to screen a camp participant for typical signs and symptoms associated with a concussion.

Red Devil Football Camps adheres to the notion that a licensed athletic trainer with training in managing traumatic brain injury will make the final recommendations and decision regarding returning a camp participant to play after a head injury with suspected concussion.

Red Devil Football Camps advocates that parents/legal guardians, coaches/administrators and camp participants alike review the CDC `Heads Up' concussion training online tutorial at http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/headsup/training/headsupconcussion.html BEFORE attending related events on campus. Red Devil Football Camps also mandates that parents/legal guardians, coaches/administrators and camp participants review the corresponding `Heads Up' fact sheet for parents, coaches and athletes (camp participants) respectively.
