Lindsay's Law Parent Info Video (Required)

Lindsay’s Law: Sudden Cardiac Arrest in Youth Athletes What is Sudden Cardiac Arrest? A Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating, cutting off blood flow to the brain and other vital organs. Sudden cardiac arrest is fatal if not treated immediately, most often by a defibrillator. Who is Lindsay? Senate Bill 252 is named for national heart health advocate and former Miss Ohio Lindsay Davis who suffers from a heart condition and has since dedicated her career to raising awareness of this potentially fatal condition. "Sudden cardiac arrest is the number one killer of student athletes," said Davis. "At any moment I could have died because coaches and teachers had no idea this was even a possibility for someone who looked as healthy as I did at that age." The video below is a required watch for all players and parents participating in PAYO sports in 2018. Please take a few moments out of your busy schedule to watch and check with your coach to sign off to verify that you have watched.
