How many concussions are our kids really getting?

We’re all hyper-aware of concussions these days, and for good reason. It’s becoming apparent that it’s no longer appropriate to just say, “he got his bell rung” and send a player back into the game. It turns out that our nation’s youth are getting many more concussions than we have thought. Coaches, parents, keep your eyes open for concussion warning signs and think safety first!

Twenty-three minutes isn’t enough

But sadly, that’s all the physical activity our schoolchildren are getting per day on average. Our partners at PHIT America.org aim to change that. This article explains how educators are cutting physical education time due to a variety of reasons and that the result is not only poorer physical fitness, but a reduction in learning as well. We need more action-based learning and less sedentary classwork. Help PHIT America make a change!
