I/We, the undersigned, am/are registering my/our son/daughter in a Catholic athletic program,which will emphasize Christian values during practice and games. Although my/our child’s team will practice hard and play their games to the best of their ability, faith in Jesus Christ - not just winning - will be the most important goal of the season.

I/We realize that my/our child is to behave in a Christian manner throughout the season, and thatfamily and friends who come to his/her games are also to act in a manner appropriate for aprogram dedicated to living the faith we profess. Any violation will result in removal from theevent, and/or refused admittance to CYO-sponsored events. A spectator is understood to meananyone in attendance at an event, including parents, family members, and/or friends. Anyspectator who displays poor sportsmanship, or interferes with the conduct of a CYO event maybe removed from the event by an official/referee, their team coach, a host-site gym supervisor, aCYO District Commissioner or Administrative Official. In such situations, it is the discretion of the CYO District Commissioner, following discussion with OYYAFM, as to whether a spectator will be barred from attendance at subsequent CYO events.

I/We also realize that my/our child will be expected to attend Sunday Mass weekly as well as Holy Days of Obligation and be enrolled in a Catholic School or attend the Parish Religious Education Program (including Youth Ministry Program). Realizing the profound influence my/our example has on our child(ren), I/we will attend Sunday Masses and Holy Days of Obligation as a strong witness of my/our faith.

I/We realize that inappropriate behavior on the part of my/our child, or family members, could result in my/our child’s suspension from the team. (see Participants’ and Spectators’ Code of Conduct).

I/We pledge to do my/our part to witness to Christian values at home and at games, to support the coaches in their attempt to develop the team into a faith community, and to take seriously the faith dimension of the team’s efforts.

Parent/Athlete Concussion Information Sheet
CONCUSSION DANGER SIGNS
In rare cases, a dangerous blood clot may form on the brain in a person with a concussion and crowd the brain against the skull. An athlete should receive immediate medical attention if after a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body s/he exhibits any of the following danger signs:
• One pupil larger than the other
• Is drowsy or cannot be awakened
• A headache that not only does not diminish, but gets worse
• Weakness, numbness, or decreased coordination
• Repeated vomiting or nausea
• Slurred speech
• Convulsions or seizures
• Cannot recognize people or places
• Becomes increasingly confused, restless, or agitated
• Has unusual behavior
• Loses consciousness (even a brief loss of consciousness should be taken seriously)

WHY SHOULD AN ATHLETE REPORT THEIR SYMPTOMS?
If an athlete has a concussion, his/her brain needs time to heal. While an athlete’s brain is still healing, s/he is much more likely to have another concussion. Repeat concussions can increase the time it takes to recover. In rare cases, repeat concussions in young athletes can result in brain swelling or permanent damage to their brain. They can even be fatal.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU THINK YOUR ATHLETE HAS A CONCUSSION?
If you suspect that an athlete has a concussion, remove the athlete from play and seek medical attention. Do not try to judge the severity of the injury yourself. Keep the athlete out of play the day of the injury and until a health care professional, experienced in evaluating for concussion, says s/he is symptom-free and it’s OK to return to play. Rest is key to helping an athlete recover from a concussion. Exercising or activities that involve a lot of concentration, such as studying, working on the computer, or playing video games, may cause concussion symptoms to reappear or get worse.
After a concussion, returning to sports and school is a gradual process that should be carefully managed and monitored by a health care professional.

It’s better to miss one game than the whole season. For more information on concussions, visit: www.cdc.gov/Concussion.

Athlete/Parent/Guardian Sudden Cardiac Arrest Symptoms and Warning Signs Information Sheet andAcknowledgement of Receipt and Review Form
What is sudden cardiac arrest?
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is when the heart stops beating, suddenly and unexpectedly. When this happens blood stops flowing to the brain and other vital organs. SCA is NOT a heart attack. A heart attack may cause SCA, but they are not the same. A heart attack is caused by a blockage that stops the flow of blood to the heart. SCA is a malfunction in the heart’s electrical system, causing the heart to suddenly stop beating.

How common is sudden cardiac arrest in the United States?
There are about 300,000 cardiac arrests outside hospitals each year. About 2,000 patients under 25 die of SCA each year.

Are there warning signs?
Although SCA happens unexpectedly, some people may have signs or symptoms, such as:
- dizziness
- lightheadedness
- shortness of breath
- difficulty breathing
- racing or fluttering heartbeat (palpitations)
- syncope (fainting)
- fatigue (extreme tiredness)
- weakness
- nausea
- vomiting
- chest pains

These symptoms can be unclear and confusing in athletes. Often, people confuse these warning signs with physical exhaustion. SCA can be prevented if the underlying causes can be diagnosed and treated.

What are the risks of practicing or playing after experiencing these symptoms?
There are risks associated with continuing to practice or play after experiencing these symptoms. When the heart stops, so does the blood that flows to the brain and other vital organs. Death or permanent brain damage can occur in just a few minutes. Most people who have SCA die from it.

Act 59 – the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act (the Act)
The Act is intended to keep student-athletes safe while practicing or playing. The requirements of the Act are:
Information about SCA symptoms and warning signs.
- Every student-athlete and their parent or guardian must read and sign this form. It must be returned to the school before participation in any athletic activity. A new form must be signed and returned each school year.
- Schools may also hold informational meetings. The meetings can occur before each athletic season. Meetings may include student-athletes, parents, coaches and school officials. Schools may also want to include doctors, nurses and athletic trainer.

Removal from play/return to play
- Any student-athlete who has signs or symptoms of SCA must be removed from play. The symptoms can happen before, during or after activity. Play includes all athletic activity.
- Before returning to play, the athlete must be evaluated. Clearance to return to play must be in writing. The evaluation must be performed by a licensed physician, certified registered nurse practitioner or cardiologist (heart doctor). The licensed physician or certified registered nurse practitioner may consult any other licensed or certified medical
professionals.

I have reviewed and understand the symptoms and warning signs of SCA.
