Heads up: Concussion in Youth Sports
Thursday, September 11, 2014
To help ensure the health and safety of young athletes, CDC developed the Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports initiative to offer information about concussions to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. The Heads Up initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion. All coaches are now required to gain certification in recognizing the symptoms of concussions in youth sports. The CDC has provided excellent information to help parents, players and coaches recognize the severity of this common injury.
