Korrio, developer of a next generation sports automation platform, recently conducted the inaugural Korrio Youth Soccer Coaches Concussion Awareness Survey aimed at gaining valuable insights into the level of concussion awareness and training among youth soccer coaches in the United States.
The survey focused on coaches’ awareness of concussions, organizational protocols for dealing with concussions, concussion management training and education, awareness of baseline testing, the current use and integration of baseline testing in concussion management programs and parental education. More than 250 youth soccer coaches from around the country participated in the online survey, which was conducted from November 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011.
Survey results revealed interesting trends in — and issues facing — concussion awareness and management in youth soccer.
