USA Gymnastics announces a new partnership with TeachAids to provide members access to CrashCourse materials as part of the organization’s commitment to athlete health and wellness.
CrashCourse content, which was created in collaboration with more than 100 medical and sport industry experts, is designed to improve understanding and awareness of concussions among young athletes. The curriculum utilizes state-of-the-art technology and interactive features to appeal to and engage young people as they learn how to identify and respond to concussion injuries.
The curriculum is unique not only in its visual technology but also in that it speaks from the athlete’s perspective on the importance of reporting a concussion to a coach, athletic trainer or parent, according to a media release from USA Gymnastics and TeachAids.
“The safety and well-being of our athletes is our top priority. Partnering with industry experts, such as TeachAids, allows us to provide our members essential education resources to help keep athletes safe, and we are thrilled to add the technology and unique perspective of CrashCourse concussion awareness and response training to the library of educational materials available to our community.”
— Kim Kranz, USA Gymnastics Chief of Athlete Wellness
“We are proud to work with the leadership at USA Gymnastics on this important issue. It is critical to educate our athletes about this invisible injury across all sports. USA Gymnastics is leading by example!”
— Dr. Piya Sorcar, founder and CEO of TeachAids
