Any youth coach in Tennessee or Georgia who does not make parents sign a concussion form is breaking state law.
That goes for all sports, all ages, public or private, as long as the team collects any sort of fee.
The new law has been in place since January. But Channel 3 has learned some local coaches have been slow to adapt.
Some area schools are also getting involved by requiring all students or parents to sign the form, even if the child does not play a sport.
