House Bill 404
148th General Assembly (2015 - 2016)
The General Assembly has ended, the current status is the final status.
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLES 16 AND 29 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO CONCUSSION PROTECTION IN YOUTH ATHLETIC ACTIVITIES.
In 2011, the State adopted concussion protections for youth involved in sports and athletic activities regulated by the Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association (DIAA) codified at Title 14 Del. C. §303(d). However, the DIAA’s jurisdiction only applies to member schools and excludes youth athletic events sponsored by leagues, clubs, and other organizations. This bill is intended to fill this gap by establishing similar concussion protection standards for youth involved in non-DIAA regulated athletic activities.
