NYS Anti-Concussion Ordinance sign now

Anti-Concussion Ordinance to be Adopted By All NYS Municipalities and School Districts

Require schools to adhere to the Sports Legacy Institue's 7 Steps for Brain Safety

Medical research has exposed a brain trauma crisis in contact sports. In sports like football, soccer, and ice hockey, studies show that every season around 50\% of athletes experience concussive symptoms after a hit to the head. Unfortunately, only a small percentage of these are reported and diagnosed. Additionally, many diagnosed concussions are not treated properly. These undiagnosed and poorly managed concussions put young athletes at risk of Second-Impact Syndrome, which can cause permanent injury or even death. Finally, the evidence is now clear that repetitive brain trauma suffered in youth sports causes some athletes to develop the progressive neurodegenerative brain disease Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), which eventually leads to dementia.

While sports provide immense value both to athletes and our society in general, with current practices they are exposing children to unacceptable levels of brain damage. Much of this brain damage, however, is preventable While sports provide immense value both to athletes and our society in general, with current practices they are exposing children to unacceptable levels of brain damage.
