1. Take the Pledge

National Team Up Speak Up Week was September 8-14 and it 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!

Take the Pledge ›


*Athletes under 18 must ask a coach, parent, or team leader over 18 to pledge in order to qualify.

2. Give the Speech

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:


3. Post Your Video using #TeamUpSpeakUp

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! 

Don't forget the hashtag. To make it even easier for us to find your video contest entry, when you post your video tag the Concussion Legacy Foundation on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
