Dylan Steigers Protection of Youth Athletes Act:
This law in Montana defines a youth athlete as an individual who actively participates in an organized youth activity and the organized athletic activity is sponsored by a school or school district. Each school district offering organized youth activities is required to adopt policies and procedures to inform athletic trainers, coaches, officials, youth athletes and parents of the nature and risks associated with head injury and concussions. Each youth athlete and a parent are required to sign an information form each year prior to participation in athletic activity. Coaches, trainers and officials are required to undergo annual training. A coach, trainer, or official shall remove a youth athlete from play when exhibiting signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion. A youth athlete may not return to organized athletic activity until concussion related signs, symptoms and behaviors are no longer present and written clearance from a licensed health care provider is received indicating that the youth athlete has been evaluated and is capable of safely resuming participation.
