Let's Help to Bench Concussions this Season

Heads Up Concussion Facts for Coaches by US Lacrosse (4 page document)

From NAYS:

With all the news about concussions in sports, it's evident that concussions don't discriminate against the sport or the level of play. A youth player can suffer from a concussion just as a professional athlete can, so here are some ways you can help protect your athletes this season:

Make sure that athletes wear the right type of protective gear for their activity. Check that the gear fits your player properly and that it is maintained. Also, stress to your players the importance of wearing their gear consistently and correctly.

Teach athletes and parents that it is not ok to play with a concussion, or any other type of injury. Explain that playing through an injury doesn’t show strength, but instead can further harm the youngster and make their injury worse.

If you suspect that a player is suffering from an injury, take them out of the game immediately and direct them to medical attention.

Teach players safe playing techniques and appropriate rules. Check out the Skills and Drills section of your NYSCA Member Area, or the Coaching for Dummies books by the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS).

Take the NAYS Concussion Training.  It's offered for free to NYSCA coaches and is easily added to your membership online. This training builds upon the information covered in the NYSCA Coaching Youth Sports clinic, delving further into the topic of head injuries and prevention. Also, if your league requires you to obtain concussion training, you will be able to print a certificate to show your league that you have completed concussion training through NAYS. (Learn more)
