Changing the Culture of Concussion Starts with You!
You can improve the culture of concussion by taking this free online training and using what you learn to inform how you talk about, prevent, and respond to concussions. Your actions can help create a safe environment for young athletes so that they can stay healthy, active, and thrive – both on and off the playing field.
You can print out a certificate once you complete the training and quiz, making it easy to show your league or school that you are ready for the season.
Learn Important Steps in Concussion Safety.
By the end of the training, you will be prepared to:
Explain what a concussion is and the potential consequences of this injury,
Identify at least three concussion signs and symptoms,
Describe the steps for returning to activity (play and school) after a concussion, and
Create a plan for how to help keep athletes safe from 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.
