For athletes who suffer a severe concussion (severe symptoms, prolonged recovery) or two concussions of lesser severity, the question of season disqualification should be considered. Objective indicators of when it is appropriate to consider season disqualification include prolonged post-concussion syndrome and diminished academic or athletic performance.

The NH State Advisory Council on Sport-Related Concussion recognizes that insuring resolution of concussion prior to allowing return to sport activity is the basis of safe management of sport concussion. The Council further recognizes that a history of multiple concussions should prompt more conservative management and may warrant consideration of the advisability of continued participation in contact or collision sports.
