As long as there is competition for playing time, players & parents will push when it is dangerous for the player to play. Clubs & leagues need to have & FOLLOW strict concussion policies like high school does. Most of these kids won't suffer until down the road when it's too late.

They won't until they get sued. That's why they banned heading U12 and under - lawsuit. I agree each league should have it's own strict rules and mandatory training (not "hey coach, read this pamphlet"). The issue I see is that players will push themselves (and some parents will too - can't tell you how many former football-playing-dads brag about they just "shook it off" when they played so why can't their kids). A coach, even with some training, can be fooled (and tempted) to think a player is ready to play. A policy will help, but it takes players, coaches, parents and refs all working for common goals to make it better. Other issue is forcing families to pay for an initial DX and a follow up office visit.

Which clubs hand out pamphlets? Where do people find these pamphlets?

OYSA player card registration includes supplemental health insurance. Not sure what the deductible is now, but it could help.
