Tackling Concussion in Youth Football


The Gateway Football League, an organization with 4,500 children participants, is attempting to change the way children play the game of football. Tom Lansing, the president of the league says coaches are paying closer attention to what is going on under the helmet than ever before. Mr. Lansing has instituted a policy that is followed by high school leagues where a player is taken out of competition if he shows signs of concussion. That player is not allowed to play until a doctor clears the player. Moreover, Mr. Lansing is attempting to teach children proper tackling techniques to avoid head injuries.

As many scholars recognize, there is an ever growing concern about head injuries affecting youth. That is why the firm of Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC has initiated a program which gives young children access to helmets. The firm has given away bicycle helmets to young children to promote helmet usage. These simple steps reduce the risk of childhood brain injury and protect our country's children.
