Concussion Training

Clarksville Jr Pro Football League supports the Center for Disease Control's Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports initiative. The initiative is a nationwide effort to provide information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion. Safety of our athletes is the foremost and primary concern of our league. As a Youth Sports League, we share the responsibility to provide this information to our athletes, parents, and coaches.

Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports

"To help ensure the health and safety of young athletes, CDC developed the Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports initiative to offer information about concussions to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. The Heads Up initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion."
