This spring SLI partnered with MLL to create a comprehensive concussion program for the 2013 season. The new program includes innovative elements such as "Concussion Check" and "Concussion Caretaker." Read the press release here.
The goal of the SLI Hit Count™, modeled after the “Pitch Count” in youth baseball, is to develop and promote guidelines to regulate the amount of brain trauma that a child is allowed to incur in sports. SLI is working with technology companies who have developed sensors in helmets, headbands, and mouthguards to measure brain trauma in real time. Click here to learn more.
The “SLI Concussion Checklist” is an online resource designed to help coaches, parents, teachers, medical professionals, and others evaluate their program to provide the safest environment for young athletes to compete & succeed. Click here to learn more.
