An estimated 3.8 million concussions occur each year. Sadly, only 1 in 6 concussions are diagnosed.

US Lacrosse wants to empower coaches to help change the concussion culture in lacrosse.

For the second straight year, US Lacrosse has partnered with the Concussion Legacy Foundation to help promote a healthy team environment in which players are encouraged to speak up on behalf of a teammate. It’s at the core of being a good teammate. 

The week of March 3-9 has been designated as Team Up Speak Up week for lacrosse teams across the country. All coaches are encouraged to give a simple, one-minute speech to remind their players to take the responsibility of speaking up about concussions.
