I am very happy to sign this petition. Safety in youth sports is very important. If concussions go undetected and kids are sent back onto the field, brain trauma could occur. Early detection will save their lives.
My 5 yo is about to start his first sport, soccer. I want him safe no matter what sport he plays, now or in the future. No sport or win is worth his life or negative effects on his mental/physical capacity, which "could be" prevented by a simple trip to the ED if a concussion or other head/neck injury is suspected.
The future of our nation is based on the care of our youth; what are you going to do?
My grandson suffered a concussion last season and that's to a great team mom he got treated right away!
I signed..lets all sign and get this passed for the safety of all the children!
I signed it too...thanks or the eye opener.
I signed it due to I had concussion long time ago, 3 years ago I developed a brain A...see my story in NBC news of what happened to me, and why I think ea and beleive in early detection @ www.brainogram.org it may save your life too.
This should be common sense.
This should cover all school athletes, even if they are over 18.
yep did it.
