PYH Concussion Policy
Dear players, parents, coaches, and managers. Please take a few minutes to read the PYH Concussion Policy. Your Board of Directors has taken the time and effort to establish a policy that we believe will benefit everyone associated with Perinton Youth Hockey. Although we are not medical professionals, and we certainly are not offering medical opinions, we are concerned with the safety and security of all of our players.
We are sure most of you are aware of the attention being paid to concussions in all areas and all levels of sport today. It is our hope that the PYH Concussion Policy will help everyone become familiar with the signs and symptoms of concussion and understand that there is a treatment process and procedure that must be followed to ensure our players will return to the ice safely and in good health.

Again, we encourage all to read the policy and discuss it with your players. Your assistance with implementing this policy is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
