The CONNY (Connecticut New York Youth Lacrosse Association) Board recognizes the importance of Concussion Awareness and Training for all their teams and players. To help our teams, Katherine Price Snedaker, the CONNY Science & Safety Committee Concussion Advisor, developed www.SportsCAPP.com, which is a five step program to build concussion awareness in your organization. Sports CAPP is short for a Sport Concussion Awareness and Prevention Program. This program can be used by any team or organization as it spells out one step at a time how to help with concussion awareness for all the members of your team – kids, parents and staff.
This five step program is outlined on the website with free resources and links to materials and videos. The site shows how to educate every member of your organization about concussions before they occur, adapt safe practices for your sport, and train your coaches to react when head injury occurs.
