Concussion Regulation


Overview 

The Cambridge Public Health Department passed a local health law designed to protect children (under age 18) from head injury or concussion, in organized sports and other athletic activities. The Cambridge concussion regulation is intended to protect a greater number of young athletes than are currently covered under the Massachusetts head injury law. The Cambridge concussion law applies to all youth athletic programs that apply for permits to use city-owned facilities,such as football or soccer fields.
 
Youth athletic programs covered by the law include, but are not limited to:
  • Baseball leagues
  • Football leagues
  • Lacrosse leagues
  • Soccer leagues
  • Softball leagues
