American youths sustain between 1.1 million and 1.9 million sports or recreation related concussions every year, according to a study published in the journal, Pediatrics. Concussions in the U.S. rose 143% among 10 to 14 year olds and 87% among 15 to 19 year olds from 2007 to 2014. Sports rank 2nd (behind only motor vehicle crashes) as the leading cause of traumatic brain injury among people aged 15 to 24.

To combat this serious trend, the MEL has added a link to several resources from the Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey for parents and coaches of young athletes on its website, https://njmel.org/mel-safety-institute/resource-center/public-safety/sports/
