USA Field Hockey Partners with TeachAids to Provide Certification for CrashCourse Concussion Education Training
TeachAids is proud to announce a partnership with USA Field Hockey, the National Governing Body responsible for the sport of field hockey in the United States. Together, we will work towards improving the safety of the sport for youth athletes and for generations to come.
“We are proud to join forces with TeachAids to foster better understanding surrounding concussions amongst our athletes,” said Simon Hoskins, Executive Director of USA Field Hockey.
One in five high school athletes experience a concussion in their lifetime, and concussions have become one of the most widely discussed issues in sports. USA Field Hockey prides itself in promoting best practices for concussion education amongst its community. Today they join a growing cohort of National Governing Bodies of sport such as USA Speedskating, USA Artistic Swimming and USA Football that are distributing CrashCourse concussion education for free and accompanying Certifications to their membership communities.
The CrashCourse content will be available on the USA Field Hockey website, and athletes will be able to earn a Certificate for completing the education program.
“With my background in public health, I’ve learned how important it is to create health education materials that resonate with their audiences,” explained Dr. George Rutherford, Director of the Prevention and Public Health Group at UCSF. “CrashCourse by TeachAids has done an incredible job distilling important education in a way that is both engaging and interactive for youth.”
“As a coach, the safety and well-being of my athletes is a top priority,” explained Tara Danielson, Head Coach of Stanford Women’s Field Hockey and Athletic Advisor to CrashCourse by TeachAids. “I’m proud of USA Field Hockey for their efforts to bring compelling education to our youth field hockey players.”
The CrashCourse curriculum will be instituted throughout USA Field Hockey’s programs nationwide starting today via their website and other channels.
