U.S. Ski & Snowboard announces a partnership with non-profit health education innovator TeachAids to provide members concussion education resources as part of the organization’s ongoing commitment to athlete health and wellness.
TeachAids’ Crash Course Education features an innovative platform that aims to teach the latest science around concussion prevention and treatment.
CrashCourse is a video-based interactive learning experience developed alongside a team of academics, researchers, doctors, and athletes. CrashCourse utilizes virtual reality and other interactive online technologies, taking an individual through real-life scenarios, a Brain Fly-Through, a Concussion Story Wall, as well as a series of short films with respected athletes who raise awareness and thereby reduce stigma.
“CrashCourse will not only enhance our ability as an organization to educate athletes and coaches, but thanks to TeachAids’ extensive network, it will also allow U.S. Ski & Snowboard to collaborate with some of the country’s top sports organizations. Between the groundbreaking technology and extensive network of teams, athletes, and medical professionals that TeachAids brings to the table, we look forward to improving our internal health education processes as well as creating greater concussion awareness within the ski and snowboard community.”
— U.S. Ski & Snowboard Director of Sport Education Gar Trayner
“It’s been incredibly inspiring to work with the leadership at U.S. Ski & Snowboard. They care deeply about identifying research-based and highly impactful methods to make sport safer.”
— Dr. Piya Sorcar, Founder and CEO of TeachAids
