Recreation Director Matt Goins started the discussion by presenting board members with information about HB 284, which addresses concussions. He said he wanted to make sure board members understand the guidelines in the bill only applies for school sports programs, not county recreation.
Goins said that the accompanying risk information does apply to the county, and it will be given to all parents of team applicants.
“Our advisory committee will be working on procedures,” he said.
Commissioner Daylon Martin suggested a copy of the risk notice should be posted at each complex.
Goins said he is planning a Feb. 10 concussion workshop for all youth coaches in the county. He said it would be a free workshop, and he added that concussion certification classes are available online for anyone not able to attend the class.
