We've partnered with SportGait to make a measurable improvement in concussion safety
Preserving the game, while making it safer.
Let's Improve the Numbers
We have the responsibility of over 70,000 youth athletes who play soccer with NCYSA
1 out of every 8 youth athletes are likely to get a concussion during the year. That’s 8,750 youth athletes in NCYSA that we can help return to play safely.
Without concussion education, athletes and parents are only able to recognize 15 of the 31 concussion signs/symptoms.
Over 50% will potentially return to play before they have fully recovered and even more return to play without medical clearance.
Let’s make sure all of our parents, athletes and team staff know how to recognize a concussion.
Let’s make sure all of our athletes return to play safely and fully recovered.
With participation from our sports organizations, we believe we can make a measurable change in these statistics.
