Lindsay's Law: Sudden Cardiac Arrest in Youth Athletes
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 following resources were developed to implement Lindsay’s Law:

The age divisions have changed to conform to the USSF standards for the Passer through Minors divisions. Those division brackets will be based on the birth year of the player. Please see the chart below. The divsion ages have also shifted 'up' one year, so some players may play a 3rd year in a division. The rules for 'playing up' are currently being drafted.
Since SAY considers the pre-school program (Candy 3, Candy 4 and Dribblers) non-competitive, CYSA can and has adopted modified age brackets for those divisions.
A new division has been formed called the Dribblers. Dribblers will play a 'modified' 6v6 Passer game. There will be 5 players on the field with a goalie. Scores will be recorded however Dribblers will NOT participate in the CYSA in-house tournament.
CYSA has teams for ages 3 - 18. Our teams are divided into the divisions below. Teams are formed by gender, unless otherwise noted below. The age is based on the players' birth year for divisions above the Dribblers division.
