Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Institute
Heads Up Concussion in Youth Sports is a Center for Disease Control (CDC) program to bring awareness to the dangers of head trauma in young people, particularly those in youth sports.
We have fact sheets for athletes, parents (teachers) and coaches with information about:
- What a concussion is
- What are the symptoms
- Prevention and preparedness
- What to do if you suspect a concussion
Athlete and parent fact sheets are in English and Spanish.
We have a limited number of clipboards with concussion information printed on them to help coaches remember to look for symptoms of concussions in their athletes. Request a few to give to any coaches in your community. We also have some stickers with information that can be attached to clipboards.
NOTE: clipboards and stickers are not listed on the order form. To request these, please call 617-636-6381.
