Lindsay's Law

As you may have heard, there has been a new law passed, Lindsay’s Law, that require all youth athletes, parents/guardians, and coaches to complete a set of requirements prior to participating in any sports activity annually.

 Effective immediately, in accordance to Senate Bill 252, all MSC members must follow and adhere to the Lindsay’s Law: Sudden Cardiac Arrest in Youth Athletes and its requirements.

 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.
