What a great time to check in about safety and ways you can showcase your skills that are natural to you!

A lot of attention recently has gone to NFL players and CTE, the degenerative disease linked to repeated blows of the head. But some may be surprised when talking about concussions and brain injury that girls’ soccer has the highest amount of concussions in all high school sports, according to a recent study by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.

Soccer, like many sports, can be highly combative. The brain is no different than any other body part and its injuries need to be treated in the same way. Founded by Taylor Twellman, former MLS and U.S. Soccer star, ThinkTaylor is an organization that raises awareness about concussion safety.

September 11-15 was named Concussion Awareness Week, where athletes all over the country from youth to professional took the ThinkTaylor pledge. You too can learn about the ThinkTaylor campaign and commit to treating your head injury here.
