There is a concussion regulation in Wisconsin. This regulation requires all organized athletic programs to provide concussion information to participants, parents, and coaches. Coaches and parents will have responsibilities to ensure removal from activity and evaluation for any potential concussions. Fact sheets for parents and athletes are on our website, and there is an agreement form that will be a required part of the registration process. We place the utmost priority on the safety of our sailors young and old and are happy to pass along this important information and comply with the new regulations!
