A Spartan athlete suspected by that athlete's coach, athletic trainer, or team physician of sustaining a concussion or brain injury in a practice or game shall be removed from the activity at that time. An athlete who has been removed from play, evaluated, and suspected to have a concussion or brain injury shall not return to play that same day nor until (i) evaluated by an appropriate licensed health care provider and (ii) in receipt of written clearance to return to play from such licensed health care provider.
In order to participate in athletics on Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) fields all coaches, parents, and players must complete annual concussion education training. All Spartan games are played on FCPS fields. Please go to the concussion education training page and complete one of the short, online, free courses offered through the number of available resources.
