Play Smart: Understanding Sports Concussion

A concussion is a mild brain injury caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body that causes the brain to move rapidly inside the skull. Every year, approximately 60,000 high school athletes experience concussions that are sports-related.

To help address and prevent sports concussions in young people, BIA-MA has produced an award-winning video for parents, coaches and student athletes. Play Smart: Understanding Sports Concussion includes two 12-minute segments. One segment is specifically designed for coaches and parents while the other segment caters to student athletes. The videos include facts about sports concussions, personal testimonies of student and professional athletes and expert advice.
