SPRING 2014 YOUTH
Tennessee Sports Concussion Law
This New Law Went Into
Effect January 1, 2014
In April 2013, Tennessee became the 44th state to pass a sports concussion
law designed to reduce youth sports concussions and increase awareness of
traumatic brain injury. The legislation,
Public Chapter 148, has three key components:
- To inform and educate coaches, youth athletes and their parents and
require them to sign a concussion information form before competing.
- To require removal of a youth athlete who appears to have suffered a
concussion from play or practice at the time of the suspected concussion.
- To require a youth athlete to be cleared by a licensed health care
professional before returning to play or practice.
Both public and private school sports and recreational leagues for children
under age 18 that require a fee are affected by the new law. The law covers all

recognized JAWS at their meeting with a plaque. In attendance were Susan, Bob,
Bobby, Alex and Pope.
Here is a copy of the press release.
The Board of Directors of the Jackson Area Wide Soccer Association (JAWS)
recently announced that it will commit to the City of Jackson up to $25,000 to
be used toward the renovation of the fields at Kate Campbell and other
maintenance and improvements to the City of Jackson soccer fields. This
commitment will be the first of an ongoing pledge to provide the City of Jackson
every three years of up to $25,000 for maintenance of soccer fields.
JAWS hopes that this pledge of up to $25,000 will help bring the fields at Kate Campbell Park back up to
standards, and provide a safe field of play; as well as providing additional
funding for maintenance over the next 3 years. JAWS understands the importance
of maintenance and has assisted the City of Jackson in the past with projects
directed solely toward field maintenance.
is JAWS’ hope that in the future, donations to the City of Jackson can be used
for the purpose of undertaking new projects (example: lights for North Park, New
Soccer Complex, etc.), developing new programs (example: soccer for South
Jackson, 3v3 tournament, etc.) and continuing to grow soccer in Jackson.

soccer. This donation will go toward the purchase of new goals for refurbishing

of the donation will be utilized to sod the baseball fields at North Park where
the clay is on the fields, so as to provide more playable surfaces as well as
safer playing fields. This $10,000 donation brings the total to $50,000 that the
