Sudden Cardiac Arrest Law for Youth Athletes
The "Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act," which goes into effect before the start of the 2012-13 school year, requires schools to issue an information sheet to parents of student-athletes about warning signs and symptoms of sudden cardiac arrest. Parents must sign and return the form to the school before their children can participate in athletics. Click here to read the full statute.
