Concussions in Sports


The National Alliance for Youth Sports is aware that concussions in sports are an extremely important topic for coaches and parents of young athletes no matter the sport. The Sports Concussion Institute estimates that between 5-10% of all athletes will experience a concussion during a given season and those numbers increase for contact sports such as football and soccer.

Because this is such an important subject, we have created optional concussion training courses for NAYS Coaches and NAYS Parents to supplement the information covered during their training. NAYS has also decided to offer this course to everyone, completely FREE!
