The recommendations, to take effect for the 2012-13 academic year, incorporate several common components including a continued emphasis on educational initiatives. For example, consistent with current protocols, preseason meetings between teams and athletic trainers, team physicians and outside speakers will emphasize learning and recognizing the signs of concussion, the importance of reporting symptoms and the potential life-changing impact of concussion. Also among the common recommendations, men’s and women’s lacrosse and men’s and women’s soccer will collect prospective data regarding concussions in the coming seasons in order to produce higher quality concussion data for further study. The Ivy League office will also collect video clips from men’s and women’s soccer and men’s and women’s lacrosse games to assess whether the video is of sufficient quality to allow for the future implementation of a postgame review and possible suspension policy, similar to the current review in football.The Ivy League is looking to protect head melons. This is a good thing.
