Concussion Information

History

On May 14, 2009, Governor Christine Gregoire signed House Bill 1824 - also known as the Zackery Lystedt Law - which will directly affect youth sports and head injury policies. In preparation of the law becoming effective on July 26, 2009, Washington Youth Soccer has launched a concussion education section on its website.
