Rules Offered to Curb Youth Head Injuries
from The Boston Globe    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail
Massachusetts health authorities are expected to propose stringent regulations aimed at reducing head injuries in adolescent athletes — and assuring that injured players don't return to the field until their brains have recovered. The rules give form to emergency legislation enacted last summer amid burgeoning concerns about the long-term consequences of concussions and a sports ethos that for decades celebrated athletes who proved their mettle by playing even when their heads throbbed and they felt woozy.

NATA has contacted the source of this article to thank them for the coverage and to remind about the correct terminology when referring to an athletic trainer.

This is The Kill Season. It operates mostly out of mind and certainly out of sight. It has claimed 19 lives since 2000. The annual window of death in college football basically opens this month. And it's all completely accepted. It is a part of the football culture — winter conditioning, offseason conditioning, summer conditioning. All of it. More specifically, The Kill Season begins in January and stretches to the beginning of fall drills in August. That's a long time for anyone to be at mortal risk, but it's true.
