WHAT IS IT?

The Team Up Against ConcussionsTM program is a free 30 minute concussion education program for schools, community centers, and athletic programs.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Trained volunteers educate student-athletes about concussions through discussion, video, and interactive games, teaching them that successful athletes play hard and play smart. Using an evidence-based bystander intervention model, the program focuses on empowering student-athletes with the knowledge they need to take concussions seriously and foster a safer concussion culture.

WHO IS IT FOR?

The Team Up Against ConcussionsTM program is designed for students in grades 4-12. ​

IS IT EFFECTIVE?

Yes! The Team UpTM program has been shown to effectively increase concussion knowledge.

2012: 93% of students agreed or strongly agreed, “Because of the presentation, I’m more likely to tell a friend or coach if I think I have a concussion” and 89% of students agreed or strongly agreed, “Because of the presentation, I’m more likely to tell a coach if I think one of my teammates has a concussion.”

2014: research presented at the National Neurotrauma Conference meeting in San Fransicso determined kids retained their knowledge gains for at least one month, without any homework, follow up lessons, or reinforcement.
