Heads Up! - Concussion Awareness Resources
Consistent with Hampton Soccer Club’s commitment to the safety of its players, it is the policy of the Club to inform and educate coaches, players, and their parents or guardians of the nature, risk and symptoms of concussion and head injury. As the science of evaluating and managing concussions has advanced, it has become imperative that every individual involved in the Club must become proactive in identifying and treating players who show signs of concussion or head injury.
Any player who exhibits signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion during or after a practice session or game, as described below, such as loss of consciousness, headache, dizziness, confusion or balance problems, must be immediately removed from the practice session or game, the parent or guardian must be informed of the player’s condition, and the player will not be permitted to return to play until cleared by the player’s parent or guardian.
Below please find an article and important links for education and training which address the identification and symptoms regarding concussion and head injury:
