Concussion Resource: It’s Better to Miss One Game Than the Whole Season
To help ensure the health and safety of young athletes, CDC published Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports information about concussions to coaches, parents, and athletes. Posted here is important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion. If you think your athlete has sustained a concussion…don’t assess it yourself. Take him/her out of play, and seek the advice of a health care professional. http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/HeadsUp/youth.html
