Sports Related Concussions and Head Injuries

Education for parents, caregivers, and school staff about how to protect student safety while participating in extracurricular school sports.

Health care professionals may describe a concussion as a “mild” brain injury because usually concussions are not life-threatening. Even so, their effects can be serious. Recognition and proper response to concussions when they first occur can help prevent further injury or even death. On this page, we provide information about sports-related head injury regulations, trainings, required forms for schools and clinicians, model policies for schools, and more.
