The Vermont law, signed by Governor Pete Shumlin, on May 31, 2011, includes only two of the three components considered essential (inform and educate coaches, youth athletes and their parents/guardians
about the nature and risk of concussions and require them to sign a
concussion information form; and require a youth athlete to be
cleared by a licensed health care professional trained in the evaluation
and management of concussions before returning to play or practice) and not the third (requiring the immediate removal of athletes from games or practices if they are suspected to have suffered a concussion), it is considered a "weak" youth sports concussion safety law.
