Concussion Awareness

Concussion Awareness

Moms, Dads, Coaches, and Managers,

 The prevention of concussion injuries is an increasingly important topic in all sports.  Although they can never be completely avoided, knowledge about prevention and treatment and protective gear is a obvious good place to start.

 Although the Club and your coaches can not take responsibility for eliminating or even reducing concussions, we do want each of our families and team staff to have more resources for becoming knowledgeable about concussion prevention and accessing protective gear.  Toward this end, we are directing you to the following government link for more information about the topic -  .

 Additionally, the Club has made arrangements with local sports equipment stores to make headgear and mouth guards available to our players at reduced cost.  Refer to the email distributed previously or contact [email protected] for more details.

 The responsibility for  understanding, preventing, and treating all injuries is a shared responsibility.  It is hoped that through knowledge of concussions and their prevention, coupled with informed decisions to play the game of soccer in a safe manner, the reality of concussions (along with all other sports-injuries) will be minimized - regardless of what field or court our children play on.
