Tampa, FL (PRWEB) May 29, 2014 - President Obama, who has said he would have to think "long and hard" before letting a son play tackle football due to the risk of head injuries, hosted the White House Healthy Kids & Safe Sports Concussion Summit hoping to raise awareness on how to identify, treat and prevent concussions.
i9 Sports, the nation's first and fastest-growing youth sports league franchise is taking concussion safety head-on by pioneering concussion safety reform within youth sports.
"We don't believe that injuries should be a natural and acceptable consequence of playing youth sports. That's why we've made changes to our leagues to further minimize the risk of head injury so kids can focus on learning the fundamentals of sports and having fun," says Brian Sanders, President and COO of i9 Sports. "It takes more than a coach, a team or a league to make safety changes. It takes a movement. We see the Safe Sports Concussion Summit as an important step in large scale safety reform and are excited to be leading the movement from within the youth sports arena."
