Medical / Safety Services

 


Volunteer

Safety of athletes, volunteers and spectators of the Cornhusker State Games is of paramount concern to the CSG Medical/Safety Committee. The committee works to ensure that medical/safety volunteers are on hand and equipped to provide first-aid as necessary to those sports where there is a significant risk of injury.

Adopt a Sport

Local companies and organizations have the opportunity to “Adopt a Sport” and be the Medical/Safety Team at sport venues across the Lincoln/Omaha metro areas. Hats off to all the organizations who have given so freely of their time and resources to keep our venues safe! Adopt a Sport reservation form will be available soon.


Concussion Protocol

The Nebraska Concussion Awareness Act (LB260) went into effect July 2012. The law affects public, private, denominational, or parochial schools (Statute 71-9104), as well as any city, village, business, or nonprofit organization (Statute 71-9105) sponsoring a sporting activity having athletes 19 years old or younger, where there is a cost to participants or where such costs are sponsored, i.e. club sports, select teams, Parks & Rec programs, Legion, Babe Ruth, YMCA, AAU, Pop Warner, Midget FB, etc. 


There are 3 primary components to the Nebraska Concussion Awareness Act; education, removal of athlete, and written & signed clearance for return to play (RTP). This email will serve to fulfill the portion of the law pertaining to education. Please take time to read the attachments that apply to you, and go to the links provided at the bottom of this email and complete the online training or watch the videos regarding signs and symptoms of concussions
 
In order to fulfill the portion of the law regarding educating players and parents, I ask that you forward the documents pertaining to athletes and parents and encourage them to read the information as well as watch the videos. I will have information regarding concussion signs and symptoms available at the tournament site. Any player who is suspected of sustaining a concussion during the tournament will be removed from play and not be allowed to return without written release from a physician as well as the player's parents. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
