Chartis insurance (now AIG) has launched a new initiative called “Ahead of hte Game” to enhance public awareness on how to identify the warning signs of sports concussions and the proper response. Their website includes a number of educational materials for coaches/athletic directors, parents/teachers, and athletes. The materials include fact sheest, clipboard sheets, a tip sheet on baseline testing, tip sheet on signs and symptoms, concussion, and a Q&A section.
According to Sadler Sports Insurance’s injury statistics, concussions account for about 5% of all reported injuries under youth tackle football Accident insurance. Due to the potentially catastrophic nature of concussions, this topic deserves long overdue attention.
Chartis is one of many accident insurance carriers that Sadler Sports Insurance represents and makes available to it’s clients.
