Concussion Awareness


Concussion Awareness


Every year, players of all ages in all sports receive concussion injuries during games and practices. Characterized by an impairment of the brains normal function and caused by violent shaking or jarring of the brain. Concussions may cause alterations in cognitive function, vision, eye movement, facial movement, or speech. Contrary to popular belief, no helmet in any sport can prevent a concussion.

Concussions are a type of traumatic brain injury caused by a blow or jolt to the head that can range from mild to severe and can disrupt the way the brain normally works. Coaches, administrators and trainers play a key role in helping to prevent concussion and in managing it properly if it occurs. A written concussion management plan is a recommended first step.
