Starting this winter, all tackle football programs in New York state will be required to provide information about concussions to parents or guardians of children who play the sport.
Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the law Tuesday, which mandates that informational packets be sent to the parents or guardians, discussing concussions, sub-concussive blows, and any injuries that could result. This applies to school or league programs, as well as any tackle football program organized by adults.
The Department of Health will oversee the program and put it together for parents. It will be posted for free on the New York State Department of Health website.
