The information on these pages will help everyone—from the student to the school administrator—recognize a concussion and know how to manage it effectively. 

This guide to Oregon’s concussion laws is dedicated to Max Conradt, Jenna Sneva, and all youth athletes. We encourage all children to enjoy the physical, mental, and social benefits that come with sports competition.

Sports injuries will happen. These laws help ensure that when injury occurs, schools and youth sports organizations are ready to respond appropriately.
