The Baldwinsville Youth Lacrosse Concussion policy requires each year that information about sports-
related concussion will be provided to parents about concussion prior to the start of each sports season.
Parents are required to provide written acknowledgment of receiving such information prior to their
child(ren) being allowed to participate in any sport activity. The policy further states that during a
practice or a game, if a youth sports participant sustains a concussion or exhibits the signs, symptoms or
behaviors of concussion, the youth sport participant must be removed from all sport activity. The youth
sport participant may not return to any practice or game activity until he/she is evaluated by a licensed
health care professional trained in the evaluation and management of concussion (i.e., physician,
physician assistant, nurse practitioner, athletic trainer, or Sport-Certified Physical Therapist). The youth
sport participant must provide written clearance from that provider prior to the athlete being allowed to
resume physical activity.
Lacrosse should be fun for players, coaches and parents.
Bville Youth Lacrosse believes that boys and girls should be allowed to develop a love for the game of lacrosse while also leaning the value of sportsmanship.
The purpose of the code is to ensure that all of those people associated with youth lacrosse treat each other with dignity and respect.
The Code of Conduct is a condition of membership for all players, parents, coaches and officials. All members who join Bville Youth Lacrosse agree to abide by the Code of Conduct and to be subject to the consequences of violating the code.
All enforcement decisions made by the officials of Bville Youth Lacrosse are final and not subject to review. No refunds will be granted to those players dismissed from the organization for violating the Code of Conduct.
