There are as many as 3.8 million sports and recreation related concussions each year in the United States.
Concussions are a serious public health concern and should be taken seriously. It is important that coaches, parents and players be made aware and are educated on the signs and symptoms of concussions.
Downtown Las Vegas Soccer Club has taken a proactive approach. All Coaches are required to take an online class educating them about the seriousness of concussions. While concussions are rare in typical soccer play, it is important that parents support any decision made regarding play time to players that may have suffered a concussion.
