Concussion Partner May 23, 2016

The Marlton Recreation Council (MRC) takes the current and future safety and health of our children very seriously. It is because of this that the MRC has partnered with three local health providers to make sure our players, coaches and parents are educated on concussions, IMPACT and other baseline testing, and follow up care/protocols.  Each provider has offered to send staff at no charge to train teams/coaches/players in concussion/injury prevention, injury protocols.

As you may be aware, over the past few years the topic of concussions in sports at all levels has piqued the interest of many and the issue has even reached as far as Congress to hold hearings on the subject. In our state of New Jersey, there was a similar move to have legislation enacted to deal with this very serious issue and media attention has brought this topic of concussions to the front page of our lives.


The MRC Executive Board has requested the Commissioners of all sports choose one of the partners listed and get them involved with your child's sport.  As parents, you are welcome to contact one of the providers for information and to conduct IMPACT testing.


Please mention you are a member of the MRC to receive special pricing considerations.


Thank you on behalf of the Marlton Recreation Council,
 

Jim Cucinotta
MRC President
