Concussion Education Reimagined For Today’s Generation
Concussions are one of the most serious issues facing our youth today, affecting one in five high school athletes nationwide. We must all be educated and engaged for the safety and well-being of our youth.
The Washington Student Cycling League has partnered with TeachAids, a nonprofit leader in global education innovation, to distribute free state-of-the-art concussion education and offer a certificate of completion for all participants within our community.
After hundreds of hours of research, six months of production and thousands of hours of testing, TeachAids created CrashCourse. This concussion education platform provides students, parents and coaches with the latest medical knowledge on prevention and treatment for brain injuries. The 12-minute CrashCourse film is interactive and integrates the latest in digital technologies to reach young athletes.
As mountain bikers, understanding when you or your students are experiencing a concussion and what to do next is essential knowledge.
