In compliance with Tennessee Code Annotated Section 68-55-503, the City of Millington has adopted guidelines and forms as developed by the Tennessee Department of Health to inform and educate coaches, youth athletes and other adults involved in youth athletics about the nature, risk and symptoms of concussion and head injury. Every individual involved in youth athletics must become more proactive in identifying and treating athletes who show signs of concussion or head injury.
All Millington Parks and Recreation full time employees and coaches, whether employed or volunteer, must annual complete a concussion recognition and head injury safety education course program approved by the Tennessee Department of Health. The concussion recognition and head injury safety education training programs are available on the Tennessee Department of Health website. The National Federation of State High School Associations has developed a free 20 minute course online entitled "Concussion in Sports - What You Need to Know." The course may be accessed at the National Federation of State High School Associations website.
