Concussion Impact Testing: OGB's commitment to the safety of our children is primary. Concussions in athletes are serious injuries that should be properly assessed and monitored. This Organization supports proper medical evaluation, management, and recovery of concussions. With the increase of concussions occurring in youth sports, there are many ways our athletes can be protected. "Impact testing" is a means of establishing baseline neuropsychological results that can help in the diagnosis and treatment of concussions. We encourage you to explore this, either through computer based software or in-office medical assessments. Athletes will not be allowed to play or cheer following signs or symptoms of concussions unless he/she is medically evaluated. A medical release form must be submitted to his/her coach in order for their return to athletic participation in this Organization.
Medical/injury policy: Any injury/illness requiring medical treatment will require a doctor’s clearance to resume play.
Please remember that no football athlete will be allowed to participate with metal cleats.
