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. There is also a parent information sheet available by clicking here.
