USA Football announces that its nationally accredited Coach Certification curriculum for youth coaches will include CrashCourse, a new, next-generation concussion education module for 2020 created by TeachAids.
The announcement was made recently at USA Football’s 2020 National Conference in Louisville, an annual gathering of high school and youth football coaches and administrators to address grassroots football leaders from nearly all 50 states.
CrashCourse by TeachAids is an interactive educational module created to improve concussion awareness and understanding among athletes, parents and coaches. It includes up-to-date scientific knowledge and helps to dispel myths and misconceptions about the concussion recovery process.
“Having TeachAids’ CrashCourse in our youth coach certification gives our coaches access to the best available science and delivers it compellingly for greater learning,” says USA Football Director of Coaching Michael Krueger, in a medida relase. “Education advances safer and smarter play across all sports and will always be a cornerstone of USA Football.”
In addition to being part of this year’s youth coach certification, CrashCourse is available free of charge as a stand-alone course within USA Football’s online course library.
“We are proud to join with USA Football to provide the CrashCourse curriculum to their coaching ranks,” states Dr. Piya Sorcar, founder and CEO of TeachAids. “It is a pleasure to be working together to improve concussion awareness among our youth sports community nationwide.”
