Head Injury Awareness

Player safety, especially head injury awareness, continues to remain a point of emphasis in intercollegiate soccer. As part of the officiating crew, please make sure you are aware of signs and symptoms of concussions. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has excellent educational and awareness resources for this important part of our officiating responsibility. As part of your match preparation, please review this resource before your next assignment.

Remember to stop the match and beckon medical staff onto the field immediately upon observing a potential head injury.
