Bill Pascrell (NJ-09) and Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) introduced the Supporting Athletes, Families and Educators to Protect the Lives of Athletic Youth (SAFE PLAY) Act, a bill that would promote the safety of our young athletes. NATA worked with the legislators to introduce the bill, which would take a multipronged approach of research, community education and federal support for school districts to adopt best practices to keep youth athletes safe. SAFE PLAY focuses on addressing several sports medicine areas including heat exposure, CPR and AED training, concussion response and energy drink consumption. The full press release is available now.

Innovative Concussion Treatment Focuses on Inner Ear, Cervical Spine
The Globe and Mail
An innovative concussion treatment that focuses on the inner ear and cervical spine puts youth and adult athletes back in the game more quickly than traditional treatment, researchers at the University of Calgary have found. The study, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, concluded that athletes were four times more likely to return to their sport within eight weeks if their vestibular system (inner ear) and cervical spine (the vertebrae in the neck) were treated together.

Settlement Would Give NCAA More Power to Enforce Concussion Guidelines
The Chronicle of Higher Education
A tentative settlement announced in a class-action lawsuit involving athletes' head injuries would give the NCAA new authority to require tougher return-to-play rules and to diagnose potential medical problems in thousands of current and former students. But the agreement, which calls for the NCAA to set aside $70 million for concussion testing, does not cover players' personal-injury claims — an omission that has riled some critics.

Concussions in Lacrosse Putting Focus on Game Gear
The Denver Post
Lacrosse is one of the fastest-growing high school sports in the country. It also has one of the hottest debates regarding its rules — specifically, whether girls who play should be required to wear helmets, as boys are. Boys lacrosse is a physical sport with heavy doses of contact. Girls lacrosse is regarded as more of a skill sport, with less contact. Players in the girls game are required to wear protective eyewear and mouth guards, but not helmets.
