TeachAids Announces Partnership with USA Synchro to Provide CrashCourse Concussion Education to Athletes Nationwide
TeachAids announces a groundbreaking partnership with USA Synchro, the national governing body for synchronized swimming. Together, we hope to promote athlete safety through our CrashCourse concussion education.
As a leader in the US Olympic Committee, USA Synchro will provide concussion education to their membership through multiple channels. To start, they will showcase the CrashCourse content at every major synchronized swimming competition throughout the nation, starting with their largest international competition in the world later this month in New York. Additionally, they will offer a Certificate of Completion to all their athletes who complete the concussion education program directly through the USA Synchro webpage. And lastly, Coaches will be armed with the CrashCourse concussion education in order to best serve and build trusting relationships with their athletes.
“As a member of the aquatic community, as a swimmer, I have seen how important it has been to respond to injuries that may not be as visible to others,” said Natalie Coughlin, American competitive swimmer and twelve-time Olympic medalist. “I commend US Synchro for taking a leadership role in promoting concussion safety amongst youth athletes.”
More than 38 million youth are engaged in sports across the United States. While concussions have become one of the most widely discussed issues in contact sports like football, concussions affect athletes across most sports. USA Synchro prides itself in promoting best practices for concussion education amongst its community.
“The safety and well-being of our youth athletes is an integral part of our mission,” said Adam Andrasko, CEO of USA Synchro. “We’re excited to provide effective and engaging education as presented by CrashCourse to keep our young swimmers healthy and at their best.”
We are proud to join forces with USA Synchro to increase the knowledge and understanding around concussions.
