Headway launched Concussion Aware – if in doubt, sit it out to raise awareness of the dangers of getting a bang to the head.
Professional players take concussion very seriously. So should the rest of us. Headway, Brain Injury Services & Support is appealing to everyone to become Concussion Aware. This includes players, team mates, parents, managers, referees, schools and sports clubs. We are also asking people to adopt an if in doubt sit it out policy.
To this end, we joined forces with player welfare unions across football, soccer and rugby. In association with Laya Healthcare and the support of Lifestyle Sports, we are delighted to be able to bring the message ‘if in doubt sit it out’ to homes across Ireland.
Will you help us spread the word? Go to our campaign website www.concussionaware.ie and see how you can get involved. You can also buy our elite performance Concussion Aware laces to help us spread the important message – if in doubt sit it out. ALL proceeds from your purchase will be donated to our services
