The Concussion Legacy Foundation and USA Rugby joined together to bring Team Up Speak Up to the rugby community! Giving the Team Up Speak Up Speech is a simple way to improve concussion culture on your team. The core message: athletes have a responsibility to speak up to a team leader if they notice concussion signs in a teammate.
The men's and women's USA Rugby Sevens Olympic teams are spreading the message that teammates should look out for each other when it comes to concussions as they prepare for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Watch Head Coach Mike Friday and Captain Madison Hughes from the men's team, and Head Coach Chris Brown and Captain Nicole Heavirland from the women's team as they share what makes Team Up Speak Up so important.
