Please visit the Concussion webpage and familiarize yourself with USA Rugby and Rugby Texas' policy Please also make sure your other staff, trainers and referees see the information - http://usarugby.org/concussions
Please also remember The ‘Brain Bin’, or 'Head Injury Assessment’ (HIA) is NOT ALLOWED at any level of rugby in the USA. If a player has a suspected concussion, they should be removed from play for the rest of the match, no exceptions. They are not permitted to leave the field to get checked then re-enter the match. Please communicate this to all your referees, coaches, medical folks and players.
Please remember that all teams engaged in contact play must have at least one Level II certified coach. While coaching courses MAY be added in Texas prior to our season, this is not a certainty; it is still your organization's responsibility to get someone certified, even if they have to attend a course out of state.
