Policy Corner: ACSM to Present Congressional Briefing on Concussion, Youth Sports Issues

As America’s youth return to school and begin athletic practice, tournament play, intramurals and youth league sports, we must focus on policies and practices that will help children safely enjoy sports and other activities. Following the May launch of the Preparticipation Physical Examination (PPE) Campaign and Coalition for Youth Sports Health and Safety, ACSM will host a Congressional Briefing on Youth Sports and Concussion in Washington, D.C. Sept. 23.

A panel of noted experts will address the spectrum of issues relating to the health and safety of youth athletes, with particular emphasis on policies to prevent and appropriately manage concussion. ACSM is working with the Congressional Youth Sports Caucus on a variety of issues. Future briefings will focus on other topics such as overscheduling and overuse injuries, fluid/heat/hydration, and the culture of youth sports. more
