South Carolina Student Athlete Concussion Law

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that changes the way the brain normally works. It can happen in any sport or recreational activity.

On June 7, 2013, SC’s Student Athlete Concussion bill, H. 3061, was signed by Governor Nikki Haley. The law requires school districts in SC to provide information fact sheets on concussions to all coaches, volunteers, student athletes and parents or legal guardians, removal from practice or athletic competition if an athlete has sustained a concussion, and written medical clearance must be approved from a physician before a student athlete can return to play. South Carolina’s Student Athlete Concussion Law can be found here.  For more information on concussion identification and management, please visit our prevention page.
