The State of Ohio Return to Play Concussion Law

In order to protect young athletes, the State of Ohio has passed a concussion law, commonly called the “Return to Play” law. This law, similar to laws enacted in most other states, imposes training, safety, and awareness requirements on youth sports organizations, like OSYSA, and its leagues, tournaments, coaches, referees, officials, and athletes and their families. 

With this new law, Ohio youth sports organizations must ensure that all coaches and referees that work within their jurisdiction take an online concussion awareness training course available through the Ohio Department of Health website.  This online training course must be taken at least once every three years.  

Per ORC 3707.52 as enacted by Ohio HB 143 of the 129th General Assembly, ODH is required to post free training programs that train coaches and referees in recognizing the signs and symptoms of concussions and head injuries.

TFA prefers that all of our coaches use the course certification offered by the National Federation of State High School Associations in Sports (NFHS).

The following free online training has been approved by the Ohio Department of Health for coaches and referees:
