Important Concussion Information


Ohio's "Return to Play" Bill goes into effect April 26, 2013. The bill is designed to increase concussion awareness and recognition in parents, coaches and officials in youth sports programs. All Tallmadge Recreation Department coaches and youth sports leaders will be certified in concussion awareness and recognition. View the Concussion Information for Parents (PDF).

Together, we can help protect children from more serious concussion related problems!
