Promote a dialogue about concussions within your team:
Why is this initiative important to you and why could this be important for your team? Have you personally suffered from concussions? Do you want to support a teammate/player who has been sidelined by a concussion? Do you believe players can and should do a better job reporting symptoms? We encourage you to take this initiative to a more personal level.
Check out our website for educational resources and share them with your team.
Do you have a teammate who is suffering from post-concussion symptoms. Let them know about Our Concussion Circle.
