NYSAAA and NYSPHSAA Concussion Management Mission Statement

MISSION STATEMENT

The New York State Athletic Administrators Association and the New York State Public High School Athletic Association have partnered to educate interscholastic athletic personnel, secondary school athletes, parents of the athletes, school nurses and school physicians in current sport concussion management policies and procedures. Recognizing the concussed athlete, applying the guidelines for appropriate response, understanding the dangers of inappropriate actions and following correct protocols for return to school and athletic participation will be outcomes of the educational process. As a result, the number of New York State scholastic athletes suffering from “post concussion syndrome” or “secondary impact syndrome” will significantly decrease.
