USA Archery and TeachAids Partner to Promote Concussion Awareness
TeachAids is proud to officially announce a partnership with USA Archery, the National Governing Body for the Olympic sport of archery in the United States. USA Archery selects and trains Olympic, Paralympic, World Championship, and World Cup teams, as well as developing archery at the grassroots level across the United States. In this exciting new partnership, USA Archery joins 21 other US Olympic and Paralympic Committee National Governing Bodies in our mission to promote concussion awareness.
“Although archery is not an activity in which participants normally sustain concussions, we are proud to stand by our fellow sports of the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee in a show of solidarity for the need to educate our athletes and coaches about this invisible injury,” states Guy Krueger, USA Archery Education and Training Manager. “Top-flight education can make all of sport safer, and the concussion education provided by TeachAids does just this.”
Dr. Piya Sorcar, CEO of TeachAids says, “Concussions are a large challenge facing so much of the sports world. We are honored to have the support of USA Archery as we work together to educate our young people, parents and coaches to gain a better understanding of this injury. Collectively, we hope to help make sport safer and more enjoyable for all”.
Krueger added: “Our partnership with TeachAids shows our responsibility and commitment to putting safety first for our athletes. Many of our young archers play multiple sports and if all coaches have some basic understanding of concussion protocols, it could help to create more awareness around this important topic.”
