Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Hello, Sorry about this diagnosis. He has to be seizure free first, at least for a year or two before considering participation in any contact sport.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

However he may practice under adult supervision - coach should be informed about this disability, and the coach should agree to take him in training.
