The 2022 Midwest Fall Cup Tournament Committee
Karen Maslin, Tournament Director
The tournament committee works very hard at scheduling and placing teams according to age, division and according to tournament application, it is your responsibility to fill out application completely and correctly depending on your past league and tournament results. Requests: We do try to accommodate coaching requests for coaches coaching more than one team but sometimes the schedule request is not possible. Any special requests should be made in the Notes section of the application.
IMPORTANT ISSUE: CONCUSSION LAW
In order to protect young athletes, the State of Ohio has passed a concussion law, commonly called the “Return to Play” law. Therefore, all Ohio Tournaments are responsible to monitor and track compliance with the concussion training requirements of the Return to Play law. See O.R.C. 3707.511(C)(1). Tournaments are required to collect and maintain certificates of compliance from the coaches.
1. All coaches MUST complete the Concussion Training Course from either NFHS (preferred) or CDC and submit a COPY of the completed certificate to the tournament. Both online courses are FREE of charge! See the links for the Concussion Form after you CONFIRM acceptance on the forms list.
2. Coaches must also carry their certificate COPY of compliance with them during the event.
3. Coaches are also required per Ohio law, to have distributed a COPY of the Parent Concussion Information Sheet to the parents of their team players.
If these 3 items are not satisfied, those coaches will NOT be able to coach at this event.
If a player is believed, by either a coach, referee or tournament official, to exhibit the signs, symptoms or behaviors of concussion during the tournament, that player shall be prohibited from continuing to play that same calendar day and player card will be pulled and may not play until they have received clearance to “return to play” by a physician or other authorized medical personnel.
IMPORTANT ISSUE: Lindsay’s Law Ohio
Lindsay’s Law, Ohio Revised Code 3313.5310, 3707.58 and 3707.59 went into effect on August 1, 2017. 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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-YfCWQPeqw&feature=youtu.be
