Acknowledgement of Receipt of Concussion in Youth Sports
Fact Sheet and Waiver of Liability
Effective January 1, 2014, the State of Georgia requires counties that provide public recreation facilities that organize youth athletic activities for which a participation fee is charged to provide an information sheet to all coaches, officials, youth athletes and their parents and guardians informing them of the nature and risk of concussions and head injuries. The parents and guardians must sign an acknowledgment that they received the fact sheet. As provided by the O.C.G.A. §20-2-324.1(e), complying with the notice requirements of this statute shall not cause any liability or create any cause of action against the Columbus Consolidated Government or its Department of Parks and Recreation Department.
I HAVE RECEIVED AND READ THE FACT SHEET FOR ATHLETES REGARDING CONCUSSIONS IN YOUTH SPORTS, AND I UNDERSTAND THAT NO ADDITIONAL LIABILITIES OR RESPONSIBILITIES ON THE PART OF COLUMBUS CONSOLIDATED GOVERNMENT OR ITS DEPARTMENT OF PARKS AND RECREATION ARE CREATED BY THE FURNISHING OF THIS INFORMATION.
