The Concussion Legacy Foundation and USA Hockey are proud to bring Team Up Speak Up to hockey players and coaches throughout the country! The second annual USA Hockey Team Up Speak Up Week October was 20-26, 2019. Coaches across the country shared a simple speech to improve concussion culture on their teams. The speech's core message: athletes have a responsibility to speak up to a team leader if they notice concussion signs in a teammate.
Watch head coach Seth Appert of USA Hockey's National Development Program deliver the speech to the U17 team:
In October 2018, we partnered with USA Hockey for the first ever USA Hockey Team Up Speak Up Week. NHL legend Jeremy Roenick, Las Vegas Golden Knights winger Max Pacioretty, and Olympic gold medalist Amanda Kessel asked coaches around the country to give the Team Up Speak Up Speech to begin their seasons.
