CDC Launches Campaign to Educate Coaches, Parents and Players Concerning Concussion Injury from Hockey

When playing ice hockey, young players can suffer concussions from falls, being struck in the head by the stick or puck, or from players colliding with the ice, with each other, or the boards on a hockey rink.

Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention teamed up with USA Hockey to develop the "Heads Up: Concussion in Hockey" initiative to offer information about concussions to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. Through this partnership, a poster on concussion was disseminated to hockey rinks and to hockey coaches throughout the country.
