Description


Girls playing European Soccer are reporting more concussion than any other gender in any other sport played by young athletes. Specifically "Headers" are giving girls concussions, but more than the instant effects of a "knock on the head", is Post Concussion Syndrome (PCS). Nausea, depression , suicidal thoughts are all symptoms of PCS. It has been reported that after just one concussion, girls have suffered from PCS. Proper education when participating by teachers can help reduce injuries.
