Lindsey’s Law

The OHSAA has a new requirement for student athletes and their parents.  Lindsey’s Law deals with Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in young athletes.  SCA is the leading cause of death in student athletes aged 19 or younger.  Because of its prevalence, the OHSAA is mandating that coaches, parents, and student athletes become more knowledgeable of the risk factors and warning signs of SCA.
