What is a Concussion??

A concussion is a brain injury that can occur after any blow to the head, neck, or body.

It is important to know the symptoms, because players are more vulnerable to a repeat concussion if they continue playing before full recovery.

 

Symptoms include:

Headache

Nausea and dizziness

Blurred vision

Feeling dazed

Fuzzy or slowed down

Difficulty concentrating

Loss of memory

Slow reaction time

Difficulty remembering new things

Sleepiness

Anxiety

Nervousness

Intolerance of bright lights and loud noises

 

UYSA has put policies and procedures in place in order to keep soccer players safe. It is important for everyone involved in UYSA to understand these procedures so that players can be properly treated and protected. Several important resources are listed below to help coaches, parents, and players.
