National Team Up Speak Up Week September 8-14 is the Concussion Legacy Foundation's annual event to make sure athletes are speaking up for their teammates when it comes to concussions.
Coaches, athletes*, athletic trainers, parents, or fans—pledge to give the speech or to make sure your team hears the speech from a team leader. It's the first step to win!
*Athletes under 18 must ask a coach, parent, or team leader over 18 to pledge in order to qualify.
Make sure your team hears these core principles of the Team Up Speak Up Speech from a coach, athletic trainer, or team leader. Record the speech so you can complete Step 3!
Point 1: We're a team, and teammates look out for each other.
Point 2: A teammate with a concussion needs your help.
Point 3: I expect you to speak up to a coach, athletic trainer, or team leader if you suspect a teammate has a concussion.
Giving the speech is easy! All it takes is a copy of the speech and a cell phone to capture it on video. Check out how:
Post a video to social media of your team hearing the speech with the hashtag #TeamUpSpeakUp! Submit your entry any time between August 14 and September 14, 2019 to be eligible.
The winning video will:
- Be original and creative
- Show a coach, team leader, or medical personnel giving the speech to their team.
- Inspire athletes to look out for each other when it comes to concussions!
