There are 44 million youth athletes in America. The goal of Team Up Speak Up Day is for as many of them as possible to hear a simple speech. The core message: that athletes have a responsibility to report to a team leader if they notice concussion symptoms in a teammate.
The speech should come from a person they respect, whether it is a coach, athletic trainer, doctor, or team captain. Whatever role you play, you can help us lead this culture change.
Team Up Speak Up Day 2016 was an incredible success; we were able to reach over 150 organizations accounting for more than 3 millions athletes. We're just getting started. Details on Team Up Speak Up Day 2017 are coming soon, in the meantime, take the 2017 pledge below to let us know you'll play your part and #TeamUpSpeakUp to fight concussions.
