Here at DTAA, your player's safety is our top priority. We believe it is very important to understand how to identify a concussion, and how to treat a player with a concussion. This page has resources to help you prevent and manage through a concussion.
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury. Concussions are caused by a bump or blow to the head. Even a “ding,” “getting your bell rung,” or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious. You can’t see a concussion. Signs and symptoms of concussion can show up right after the injury or may not appear or be noticed until days or weeks after the injury. If your child reports any symptoms of concussion, or if you notice the symptoms yourself, seek medical attention right away.
