Event description

Description

Who: Coaches, Administrators, and Health Care Providers from membership organizations, youth, high school, college, and pro clubs

What: The summit will include a day-and-a-half of talks by expert researchers and health care professionals that will bring their extensive knowledge on head injury and concussions to the sport of soccer. Beyond the scientific and medical talks, panels including players, coaches, referees, and leaders in the world of soccer will use their experience to share insight on these key issues and the next steps for improving player safety. Additionally, we will highlight key components and new recommendations following the Berlin October 2016 International Consensus Guidelines. This environment is meant to provide all stakeholders with a better understanding of the evidence-based medicine, policies, and procedures that can enhance the health of all players. By making this information accessible beyond the expert arenas, we can empower those with the closest interactions to their players with the ability to serve as a resource for their teams and create an environment of safe play.
