To help ensure the health and safety of young athletes, CDC developed the Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sportsinitiative to offer information about concussions to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. The Heads Up initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.
If you think your athlete has sustained a concussion…
don’t assess it yourself.
Take him/her out of play,
and seek the advice of a health care professional.
