Congratulations to Rich Engbrecht our $1000. WINNER!
The Winona Area Youth Hockey Association (WAYHA) has partnered with Winona Health and the newly formed Winona Youth Sports Safety Committee (WYSSC) to provide a comprehensive concussion management program for our players. The initial cost of screening each player will be covered by Winona Health, our local health care provider.
Concussions have become a serious problem in contact sports as our kids are bigger, faster, and stronger. The medical community has just begun to better understand the long-term effects of concussions and that even seemingly minor head injuries can greatly harm young athletes, and put their future and even their lives at risk.
Minnesota has passed legislation requiring all youth sports programs provide concussion information to parents and players, including formal training for coaches. The law mandates that a child suffering a concussion receive formal clearance from a health care provider before undergoing a gradual “return-to-play” process.
