National Council of Youth Sports and TeachAids Partner to Provide Concussion Education for Family Members, Educators and Coaches
TeachAids is proud to announce a new partnership with the National Council of Youth Sports, the U.S.’ greatest resource for youth sport participants, to share CrashCourse concussion education technology across their organization.
“Ensuring the safety and well-being of our 60 million registered participants in organized youth sports is our highest priority,” says Wayne B. Moss, NCYS Executive Director. “We’ve admired the tremendous momentum the CrashCourse concussion education program has had in our sports community and are proud to welcome TeachAids as a thought partner. Together we hope to make a sizable impact on making sports safer.”
Safety is one of four priority pillars for NCYS. Other areas of importance include increasing program quality, access and advocating for youth outcomes. NCYS has a goal of reaching one million people by coach and administrator training, implementing background screenings, and helping parents to recognize and prevent abuse by 2024.
“NCYS member organizations are the first experience most youth have in organized sport. It is imperative that all stakeholders – parents, coaches and administrators – totally commit to making the experience an enjoyable one. Ensuring the safest environment for our youth is the most important role sports administrators play. NCYS and CrashCourse are proud to partner and provide what we believe to be the gold standard in concussion education,” adds NCYS Board Chair, Adam Andrasko.
“The formative years of a child’s life are especially precious. NCYS’ commitment and investment in this experience is unparalleled,” said Piya Sorcar, Founder and CEO of TeachAids. “We are deeply honored to join forces with NCYS. Together we’ll do our very best to enhance the learning and playing environments for our nation’s youth!”
