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. We provide information about sports-related head injury regulations, trainings, required forms for schools and clinicians, model policies for schools, and other important details.
