Repeat after me: Girl, Dog, Green.

The CDC has a good pack on Concussion in Youth Sports, as part of their campaign to raise awareness about Traumatic Brain Injury. It includes check-lists of what look for and how to respond if someone gets hit in the head, as well as information on how quickly an athlete should return to the fray, and when to send them to a doctor. If you’re a coach for youth sports (or even a karate instructor with some youngish students) you can get the pack for free from this website. They can also send posters, fridge-magnets and a funky looking Concussion Clip-board.

  1. Thanks for posting this! It reminded me to sign up for the first aid course I keep forgetting to sign up for, as well as provided good information for me.

  2. That’s great – nice to see you on the site.
