Concussion and Brain Health

There is no more important topic in sports today than brain health. Leaders in youth sports consider the unique development of each athlete, incorporating physical, mental, and skills maturation, to be paramount to healthy, enjoyable participation and achieving individual sport success. This approach also emphasizes learning, developing and implementing safe sport-specific practice and playing techniques to minimize the likelihood of injury, including concussion. While many positive changes have occurred in recent years to prioritize the developing brain of youth athletes, we will continue our commitment to finding the best methods of coaching, training and competing to insure that all athletes can enjoy playing the game and the myriad benefits from healthy participation in youth sport.
