Major League Lacrosse
The Concussion Legacy Foundation and Major League lacrosse, the premier professional outdoor lacrosse league, partnered to create an innovative comprehensive concussion program for the 2013 season. The policies combined best practices from peer sports leagues while adding new elements focused on concussion education, reporting, assessment, and management. For the 2016 season, the Foundation and the league partnered for Concussion Awareness Week. Throughout the week, the organizations, teams and players engaged fans and the lacrosse community through social media and events to educate on the seriousness of concussion.
