Learn How to Help Take Concussions Out of Play

As a coach, your top priority is keeping your athletes safe and preparing them for the future - both on and off the field.  So you may be wondering:

  • How Can I recognize a Possible Concussion?
  • What Should I Do if I Suspect an Athlete Has a Concussion?
  • How Can I Help Prevent or Prepare for Concussions?

Good News!  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and its partners have developed the FREE Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports online training for coaches that can help answer these questions.

You can be prepared for the new season in less than 30 minutes.  Simply go online and take the self guided training.  Once you complete the training and quiz, you can print out a certificate, making it easy to show your league or school you are ready for the season.

Complete the FREE training today by visiting www.cdc.gov/Concussion

We can help athletes stay active and healthy by knowing the facts about concussion and when it is safe for athletes to return to play.
