USA Bobsled & Skeleton and TeachAids Unite to Provide Concussion Education
TeachAids is proud to announce a new partnership with USA Bobsled/Skeleton (USABS), the national governing body for the sport in the United States. USA Bobsled/Skeleton will include the CrashCourse content on its website to educate not only athletes currently competing in the sports, but also athletes interested in trying out for the sports in an effort to promote positive health and safety of an athlete’s career from day one through retirement.
“Ensuring the best physical and mental health for our athletes is our top priority,” said Aron McGuire, USABS Chief Executive Officer. “We have been impressed with the research-driven model by the TeachAids Team and are proud to integrate their CrashCourse concussion education into our product offerings”.
“We are honored to work with USA Bobsled/Skeleton to help further the understanding of concussions for the athlete and coaching community. Our greatest hope is that this CrashCourse concussion education will serve as a complement to existing educational materials to help make this incredibly exciting sport safer for all,” summarizes Dr. Piya Sorcar, Founder and CEO of TeachAids.
The CrashCourse curriculum will be instituted throughout Bobsled & Skeleton programs nationwide starting today via their website. USA Bobsled/Skeleton (USABS), based in Lake Placid, N.Y., is the national governing body for the sports of bobsled and skeleton in the United States.
