Soccer is a fantastic sport that allows your child to get some exercise while also learning how to work as part of a team. It is fast-paced, and as your child’s skill level improves, the likelihood of a soccer-related injury grows.

Concussions are relatively prevalent in soccer. Direct strikes to the head or quick jerking actions during impact can injure players. Concussions do not necessarily result in loss of consciousness. A concussion might be as simple as a headache, confusion, dizziness, nausea/vomiting, or fuzzy vision. Any player who exhibits signs of a concussion should be checked by a medical practitioner and cleared before returning to play.
