There is evidence that concussion education leads to a reduction in incidence and improved outcomes for concussion.

Every athlete, parent, coach and team staff should receive annual concussion education prior to the start of the season.

Concussion education can be delivered in a variety of methods.  This may include in-person presentations, videos, and on-line courses.  Handouts and web-based resources will help reinforce learning.  Posters in the team room or common areas may also be used.

Education Workshop sessions should take place prior to the season.  Pre-season meetings, parent information sessions, and during team building activities are all good times to hold a session.
