We offer a free online concussion education programs for:
The goal is to educate those around the athletes so they can better understand, prevent and recognize concussions earlier. These programs are made up of four modules – some of the firsts of their kind – are excellent resources for you. Each one is presented in an interactive format, and includes downloadable resources for you to have on hand, such as fact sheets, pledge forms, report forms and more.
Four modules make up the Concussion Action Plan
- RECOGNIZE the signs and symptoms
- REMOVE athlete from play
- REPORT to a coach, parent or athletic trainer
- RECOVER completely before returning to play
The program, which is a partnership with Mott Children’s Hospital Pediatric Trauma Program, is endorsed by the American Academy of Neurology, the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA), the Michigan High School Football Coaches Association and the Michigan Youth Athletic Association.
In addition to the online program, we also provide in-person workshops.
