Lindsay’s Law - SB252
Senate Bill 252, known as "Lindsay’s Law" place specific requirements for coaches, athletes and parents into law and went into effect in 2017. These legislative requirements can be found in the Ohio Revised Code (ORC). You can also find more information about Lindsey's Law on the Ohio Department of Health Website.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest Training Requirement: In accordance with this law, the Ohio Department of Health, the Ohio Department of Education, the Ohio High School Athletic Association, the Ohio Chapter of the American College of Cardiology and other stakeholders jointly developed guidelines and other relevant materials to inform and educate students and youth athletes participating in or desiring to participate in an athletic activity, their parents, and their coaches about the nature and warning signs of sudden cardiac arrest.
Our members will be given a copy of these guidelines at their first practice of the season and are to be signed and returned immediately. You may also download the guidelines on the Band's website and have the signature page returned by the first practice. This paperwork will need to be in our hands before the student can take the field for band camp this season. In the future, this form will become part of the summer handbook.
