This law was passed in Washington state in 2009. It prohibits youth athletes suspected of sustaining a concussion from returning to play without a licensed healthcare provider's approval. The law will directly affect youth sports, head injury policies and future City of Bellevue youth participants.

To help parents and children stay informed, Bellevue will help distribute information about this new law. Before any child is allowed to participate in a City of Bellevue Youth Sports program, the documents listed below must be read, signed and turned in prior to participation. These documents are also included in the informational packets for parents and coaches.
