Too often, concussions are not reported. There are many reasons why athletes don’t report a concussion; but we do know this – we have got to start speaking up! The Concussion Legacy Foundation is working to end the cycle of unreported concussions. They have created the "Team Up Speak Up" campaign and pledge.
Their website states: The goal of "Team Up Speak Up" (Trademarked) is for as many athletes as possible to hear a simple speech. The core message: "Athletes have a responsibility to tell a team leader if they notice concussion signs and-symptoms in a teammate.”
This week USA Hockey has teamed up with the Concussion Legacy Foundation. If you would like to sign their pledge, click here: PLEDGE TO PARTICIPATE.
