USA Baseball, the national governing body for the sport in the United States, announces a new partnership with TeachAids. Together, they will distribute CrashCourse concussion content to educate athletes, parents and coaches throughout the nation.
CrashCourse is an education initiative to provide the latest medical knowledge about the prevention and treatment of concussions. It was developed alongside leading medical, education, engineering, and science researchers and with input from world-class coaches and athletes. CrashCourse offers a unique educational experience that helps correct common myths and misconceptions in order to better recognize and address symptoms of a concussion, according to a media release from USA Baseball and TeachAids.
“CrashCourse is a fantastic tool to raise awareness and understanding of concussions in athletes. Simply put, the more our athletes know about these injuries, the better. We are proud that USA Baseball continues to be a leader in concussion education and treatment. Providing CrashCourse education for all levels of our athletes is another important positive step.”
— Dr. Josh Bloom, Chief Medical Officer of the USA Baseball Medical Oversight Commission and Medical Director for Carolina Sports Concussion Clinic
Concussions are one of the most widely discussed issues in sports. USA Baseball prides itself in promoting best practices for concussion education amongst its community. It is proud to join a growing cohort of national governing bodies of sport that are providing the CrashCourse concussion education materials to their members, the release continues.
“USA Baseball is excited to partner with TeachAids and their team of world class medical and scientific experts. This partnership provides a valuable resource for our coaches and officials and a sound foundation for safer sport participation from youth leagues on up, both in practice and in competition.”
