Concussion, Injury & Sudden Cardiac Arrest Information

Wethersfield Athletic Department

Concussion, Injury & Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness 

To the parents of All WHS Athletes,               

The WHS Athletic Department acknowledges that even with the best coaching, use of the most advanced protective equipment and strict observance of rules, injuries are still possible. On rare occasions these injuries can be severe in nature and even cause death.           

In rare cases, some athletes sustain a head injury or concussion. A concussion is a type of brain injury or TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), which changes how the cells in the brain normally work. A concussion is caused by a blow to the head or body that causes the brain to move rapidly inside the skull. Even a “ding” or “getting your bell rung” or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious. Concussions can also result from a fall or from players colliding with each other or with obstacles, such as a goalpost. 

We have a very strict protocol at WHS when one of our players sustains a head/brain injury. We will call you immediately if your son/daughter is suspected of having a brain/head injury after the initial evaluation by our certified trainer. Our comprehensive Concussion Policy includes:

  • testing all athletes to establish a computer IMPACT baseline profile
  • the athletic trainer’s systematic evaluation
  • a medical doctor’s evaluation
  • re-testing of the IMPACT computer program
  • initial practice evaluation and a systematic progression to return to play
  • a five day period of observation before re-entering competition/full practice. 

Should you be told that your son/daughter has a concussion or is suspected of having a concussion, here is what you can do at home to ensure his/her safety:

  • Close observation: he/she should never be left alone for the first 24 hours after the injury.
  • He/She should be awakened every 4-6 hours in the evening to establish their ability to awaken and alertness.
  • Keep the athlete calm, lying down, and quiet. This means no television, computer games or any type of brain stimulation!!!
  • NO aspirin or other pain medication should be taken without doctor’s approval

***Should your child not report a head injury to his coach or the athletic trainer, you must be knowledgeable of the symptoms that may occur after a game or practice, that may indicate a head injury or concussion. The following are signs and symptoms of a concussion: 

  • Worsening headache
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Vomiting or nausea
  • Decrease in responsiveness (i.e. delayed answering of questions)
  • Memory loss/disorientation
  • Increased drowsiness, slow response
  • Balance problems or difficulty walking
  • Visual problems (i.e. blurred, spots, stars, blacking out)
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Slurring of speech
  • Unequal pupils, blurred vision
  • Unconsciousness
  • Convulsions
  • Or any other conditions that are not considered “normal”. 

If ANY of these conditions are evident, please seek medical attention immediately!

*Should emergency medical attention be required, please email the athletic trainer or leave a  

message for the athletic trainer indicating the status of your student-athlete. 

A Physician’s note is required by ALL athletes who seek medical attention to return to play. 

Your student-athlete is required to report to the athletic training room for evaluation after school the next day they attend school. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Procedures for Filing an Insurance Claim Due to Athletic Injury

PROCEDURES FOR FILING AN INSURANCE CLAIM FOR AN ATHLETIC INJURY

 

If a student-athlete is injured during a WHS athletic activity and the family will be seeking reimbursement from the Wethersfield Public School’s insurance, the following protocol should be followed to ensure correct paperwork has been completed and collected in a timely fashion.  The Wethersfield Public School’s insurance (Bollinger) will commence once the family’s insurance has reached its limit.

  • Injuries that were not addressed by the WHS trainer or team doctor need to be reported to the coach immediately so notification can be sent to the AD office and the Nurse’s office.  It is imperative that if a student-athlete seeks medical attention at a primary care physician’s office, walk-in center, or hospital that the coach is informed within 24 hours of the visit.

 

  • The next day the student-athlete is present at school, he/she must complete the “Loss Notice” form with the school nurse. 

 

  • The student or parent should request, either verbally or in writing, to the school nurse that an “Insurance Claim Reimbursement” form is needed.  This request should be made within 24 hours of completing the “Loss Notice” form.  The school nurse will complete necessary information and MAIL home the Bollinger Insurance Claim Form.

 

  • Parents and/or guardians need to complete the bottom of the Bollinger Insurance Claim Form.  After attaching bills to the claim form, parents/guardians should mail all pertinent documents to Bollinger Insurance Solutions.   (All directions, company address, and phone number are on the back of the form.)

 

  • Correspondence about the reimbursement should now be between the parent/guardian and Bollinger Insurance Solutions.  Questions for the Wethersfield Public Schools can be addressed to the Business Office at the Stillman Building.

Once the online registration is complete, students will still need to visit the Athletic Office in person, prior to the first day of tryouts/practice, to verify or submit an active physical form (if needed) and to provide pay-to-participate fees (if you didn’t pay online).

The Athletic Department will then issue a "yellow card" indicating the student is cleared to participate in tryouts

You must bring your "yellow card" with you to your first day of tryouts/practice. This verifies to the coach that you are eligible to participate.

All other sports will begin try-outs/practices on March 18th.

Per CIAC guidelines, your child must have a current physical in order to register for a Spring sport. If you have already registered for a sport last Fall, Winter or Spring, your most recent physical date will be noted in InfoSnap along with the expiration date. A physical is valid for 13 months. Please contact the Athletic Department if you have any questions. A blank sports physical form, if needed, can be found on the WHS Athletic Webpage under the "Registration Information" tab.
