Concussion Instruction

concussioniconConcussions are the most common type of traumatic brain injury and occur sporadically in youth sports. Continuing research regarding concussions suggests that long-term effects can be avoided if the symptoms are identified early and proper protocol is followed. Every state in the U.S. requires some type concussion training for youth sports. Trusted Officials has created a Concussion Training video to prepare officials for handling any situation that would involve a possible concussion, along with a quiz to ensure the content from the video was absorbed.

The Trusted Officials concussion video was produced by the National Sports Center in Blaine, Minnesota. Collaborating on the project were several medical experts from the Institute for Athletic Medicine. This video is designed to train youth officials how to handle concussions, based on the industry-accepted standards produced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention  (CDC).
