AMSSM Member Discusses New Concussion Law in California

The legislation prohibits high school and middle school football teams from conducting more than two full-contact practices per week during the preseason and regular season. The bill also prohibits the full-contact portion of a practice exceeding 90 minutes in any single day and completely prohibits full-contact practice during the off-season.
