HEADS UP – Keeping our Athletes Safe

Sports are a great way for children and teens to stay healthy and help them do well in school. No sports unfortunately are free of a concussion hazard. FC Valencia takes the subject of concussions very seriously and wants to do our part in bringing information, education, and resources to everyone involved in our club.

This topic in particular is one that with proper education can be minimized.

The following information is provided by the CDC and Cal South (our sanctioning body).

Get prepared for the new season in less than 30 minutes

Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports is a free, online course available to coaches, parents, and others helping to keep athletes safe from concussion. It features interviews with leading experts, dynamic graphics and interactive exercises, and compelling storytelling to help you recognize a concussion and know how to respond if you think that your athlete might have a concussion.

Once you complete the training and quiz, you can print out a certificate, making it easy to show your league or school you are ready for the season.

What Will I Learn in this Training?

This course will help you:
· Understand a concussion and the potential consequences of this injury,
· Recognize concussion signs and symptoms and how to respond,
· Learn about steps for returning to activity (play and school) after a concussion, and
· Focus on prevention and preparedness to help keep athletes safe season-to-season.

We can help athletes stay active and healthy by knowing the facts about concussion and when it is safe for athletes to return to play.
