Concussion Acknowledgement

Parent/Athlete Concussion Information Sheet

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that changes the way the brain normally works. A concussion is caused by bump, blow or jolt to the head or body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. Even a “ding,"“getting your bell rung,” or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious.

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF CONCUSSION?

Signs and symptoms of concussion can show up right after the injury or may not appear or be noticed until days or weeks after the injury. If an athlete reports one or more symptoms of concussion listed below after a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body, s/he should should be kept out of play the day of the injury and until a health care professional, experienced in evaluating for concussion, says s/he is symptom-free and it’s OK to return to play.

Signs observed by Coaching StaffSymptoms reported by Athletes
Appears dazed or stunnedHeadache or “pressure” in head
Is confused about assignment or positionNausea or vomiting
Forgets an instructionBalance problems or dizziness
Is unsure of game, score, or opponentDouble or blurry vision
Moves clumsilySensitivity to light
Answers questions slowlySensitivity to noise
Loses consciousness (even briefly)Feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy, or groggy
Shows mood, behavior, or personality changesConcentration or memory problems
Can’t recall events prior to hit or fallConfusion
Can’t recall events after hit or fallJust not “feeling right” or “feeling down”

CONCUSSION DANGER SIGNS

In rare cases, a dangerous blood clot may form on the brain in a person with a concussion and crowd the brain against the skull. An athlete should receive immediate medical attention if after a bump, blow or jolt to the head or body s/he exhibits any of the following danger signs:

  • One pupil larger than the other
  • Is drowsy or cannot be awakened
  • A headache that not only does not diminish, but gets worse
  • Weakness, numbness, or decreased coordination
  • Repeated vomiting or nausea
  • Slurred speech
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Cannot recognize people or places
  • Becomes increasingly confused, restless, or agitated
  • Has unusual behavior
  • Loses consciousness (even a brief loss of consciousness should
  • be taken seriously)

    WHY AN ATHLETE SHOULD REPORT THEIR SYMPTOMS?

    If an athlete has a concussion, his/her brain needs time to heal. While an athlete’s brain is still healing, s/he is much more likely to have another concussion. Repeat concussions can increase the time it takes to recover. In rare cases, repeat concussions in young athletes can result in brain swelling or permanent damage to their brain. They can even be fatal.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU THINK YOUR ATHLETE HAS A CONCUSSION?

    If you suspect that an athlete has a concussion, remove the athlete from play and seek medical attention. Do not try to judge the severity of the injury yourself. Keep the athlete out of play the day of the injury and until a health care professional, experienced in evaluating for concussion, says s/he is symptom-free and it’s OK to return to play.

    Rest is key to helping an athlete recover from a concussion. Exercising or activities that involve a lot of concentration, such as studying, working on the computer, or playing video games, may cause concussion symptoms to reappear or get worse. After a concussion, returning to sports and school is a gradual process that should be carefully managed and monitored by a health care professional.

    Volunteer Commitment Deposit

    Riptide Swim Team depends a great deal on parent volunteers. More than 50 individuals are needed for a swim meet to run effectively; therefore, parents are required to volunteer in order for their children to swim in meets.

    Each family will need to submit a Volunteer Commitment Deposit of $150.  If you fulfill your volunteer requirements (meet jobs) during the season we will NOT process your Volunteer Commitment Deposit check.

    Please Note:  You will have the ability to select your volunteer options (meet jobs)  at a later date.  You will be notified when these options are available.

    The Volunteer Commitment Deposit check is due on or before May 24, 2021 at the first day of summer team practice.
