Concussions


TPSS Youth Baseball & Softball Leagues strongly encourages everyone who has a child participating in youth sports to complete an online training course. The program takes about 45 minutes and provides a comprehensive look at recognizing the signs and symptoms a child will display when sustaining a concussion. A link to the program on the CDC website can be found here: CDC - Concussion Program.

The Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that as many as 3.9 million sports-related and recreation-related concussions occur in the United States each year. Concussions in sports are a serious issue with long-term risks and complications if not treated properly. Always remember “When in doubt, sit them out”. Recognizing the signs and symptoms of a concussion is the key factor as to whether a child should return to play, and the training program provides valuable information to assure the athlete is ready to enter back into the game safely.

Heads Up



If you think your child has sustained a concussion…

don’t assess it yourself.

Take him/her out of play,

and seek the advice of a health care professional.
