Safety Procedures and Forms

Medical Release Form

Every player's parent should fill out a Medical Release Form and deliver it to the Player's Manager before practices begin each season.

If a player is injured during any NSLL event, the Player's parent should promptly complete a Preliminary Accident Report and deliver it to the League Safety Officer. If the injury involves a suspected concussion, or other head injury, the parents and other adults involved must follow the NSLL Head Injury Policy.

If an injured player's parent has any reason to suspect the player's injuries may require medical attention, or may not fully and quickly resolve, the parent should complete the "Accident Notification Form" and deliver it to Little League International not later than 20 days after the event.
