NEW HEADING POLICY
Concussions are on the rise. Because of this there are new IESA concussion protocols in place. All children ages 10 and under are not allowed to head the ball in practice or games. Children ages 11 and up are allowed and will need to familiarize themselves with new policy guidelines. Parent and child must both sign before being allowed to play. These forms will need signed at time of registration with your school.
Please note. There is a designated sideline for teams/coaches and a separate one for fans.
