U.S. Soccer recently released a new video on recognizing and managing concussions in soccer players. The video highlights the vital roles that players, parents, coaches, referees and health professionals play when there is a suspected concussion. The video is meant to help raise awareness on the signs and symptoms of a concussion and is a part of U.S. Soccer’s Recognize to Recover (R2R) player and health safety program.
At AYSO, we suggest that our entire AYSO membership view this awareness video as a framework for actions to take following suspicions of a concussion. To view the video, please visit U.S. Soccer’s website.
For training purposes, AYSO will continue to use our CDC-approved training modules to teach our parents and volunteers about concussion safety.
