N-S-A advocates Sportsmanship, $cholar$hip$ and the Prevention of Injuries, especially TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES (esp TBI).

 

Take a minute to learn: N-S-A is the only 501(c)(3), tax-deductible, non-profit organization (1) working  to EDUCATE the PUBLIC regarding the possible prevention of  TBI and the many levels of severity of TBI (2) working to HELPREVENTBI in all youth and HS contact sports, esp FB, where the greatest number of TBI occur each year. ONE BRAIN - PROTECT IT!!!

 

FACT: TBI - Any sudden, forceful contact to the head or body can cause the brain to collide with the skull, possibly resulting in bleeding of the brain or other severe, lasting injuries. ONE BRAIN - PROTECT IT!!!

 

FACT: TBI are the most serious, most dangerous common injuries in all youth and HS contact sports and activities, esp FB. TBI can affect a person for the rest of his or her life. ONE BRAIN - PROTECT IT!!!

 

FACT: TBI can be fatal if left unattended

 

FACT: Injuries, esp TBI, prevent participation in all contact sport, esp FB.

 

N-S-A has an obligation to inform the PUBLIC regarding the possible PREVENTION of BRAIN DAMAGE in all youth and HS contact sports, esp FB. See (1) HELPREVENTBI below

 

The following FACT must be understood by all: Very few State and National Associations and Organizations  have the POWER to CONTROL game contact.

"QUICKER WHISTLES" prevent injuries, esp TBI, and control game contact for the SAFETY OF ALL PARTICIPANTS.

 

Every fan, esp FB fans, should ADVOCATE QW to prevent injuries, esp TBI

 

N-S-A PROMISES to continue to HELPREVENTBI in all youth and HS contact sports, esp FB. N-S-A can do nothing without your HELP. Any DONATION will HELPREVENTBI. Click any HELPREVENTBI to Donate. $25 from You, Your Family or Your Business is a wonderful donation.

 

FACT: N-S-A ALONE CANNOT PREVENT BRAIN DAMAGE.

 

FACT: The FB RULES BOOK says injuries due to excessive contact could be prevented by game officials who must be ready to blow a "Timely Whistle", on every play.

 

FACT: N-S-A advises all game officials, esp FB, should blow "QW" whenever possible for safety sake.

 

FACT: A large percentage of the PUBLIC doesn't realize the danger of TBI.

FACT: The PUBLIC  doesn't realize together we can change the world for millions of youth and HS athletes who will avoid possible brain damage each year because YOU DONATE $25 (or more) to HELPREVENTBI.

Play Safer • Play More • Play Longer

 

OPEN YOUR HEART, HELP EDUCATE Millions Today, HELP SAVE THE BRAINS of Millions Tomorrow.

● EDUCATE THE PUBLIC:

» HELPREVENTBI,
» RECOGNIZE TBI,
» CARE for TBI.

1) HELPREVENTBI: Using proper blocking and tackling techniques in FB can HELPREVENTBI. Just as QW for SAFETY SAKE can HELPREVENTBI in all youth and HS contact sports, esp FB. QW can protect players’ brains and increase participation more successfully than the best FB helmets.

PROPER HYDRATION is very important for all PLAYERS during practices and games.
PROPER HYDRATION can reduce the number and severity of TBI.
DEHYDRATED PLAYERS tend to suffer more TBI and more severe TBI.

2) RECOGNIZE TBI: All TBI are not the same. Why take a chance? Any player that has suffered a possible TBI needs immediate attention by a Doctor or Medical Professional to determine the severity of the TBI. See COMMON SYMPTOMS of TBI below.

3) CARE for TBI: to determine the immediate course of action by a Doctor or Medical Professional, because all brain to skull contact should be considered severe and could be fatal if left unattended.

More IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

● RESEARCH: 4,000,000 TBI occur in all HS sports each school year.

1,200,000 athletes play HS FB each yr. >> 600,000 HS FB players (½ the total) report no TBI >> 600 000 - the other half - suffer 1,880,000 TBI /yr., during FB practices and games at all HS levels. (average 3 TBI / TBI injured player / yr.) (FB has 400 000 severe TBI/ yr.) LEARN MORE

● LOGIC: More time > More contact > More injuries. In most contact sports, “Quicker Whistles” stop the action, and by doing so reduce contact and reduce the number of injuries, esp TBI, esp FB where the greatest number of TBI occur each year. HELPREVENTBI.

● COMMON SOLUTION - “Quicker Whistles” are the best way to protect players’ brains to prevent injuries, esp TBI in all youth and HS contact sports, ESP FB.

● JOIN N-S-A’s CAMPAIGN 1) Improve safety in all contact sports, esp FB 2) by promoting the prevention of TBI by QW. 3) n-s-a.org DONATE or scan the QR CODE 4) by check: Pay to N-S-A PO Box 1110 Hollis NH 03049 5) HELPREVENTBI with a one time gift of $25. 6) You can help even more by encouraging your friends to JOIN GIVE SAVE BRAINS. DONATIONS to N-S-A are tax deductible and will help to EDUCATE the

● SOME COMMON SYMPTOMS of TBI: Confusion ♦ Blurred vision ♦ Sensitivity to light ♦ Difficulty concentrating ♦ Slurred speech ♦ Inability to recognize common things ♦ Irritability ♦ Persistent headache ♦ Persistent repetition of words ♦ Anger ♦ Apathy ♦ Loneliness ♦ Problem with balance ♦ Blackout ♦ Dizziness ♦ Fainting ♦ Fatigue ♦ Dilated pupil/unequal pupils ♦ Nausea/vomiting

WHY do many Principals, ADs and FB Game Officials (1) refuse to support N-S-A’s QW CAMPAIGN TO PREVENT INJURIES and (2) avoid any discussion regarding TBI? Who is being severely injured while they pass the buck? 400 000 FB PLAYERS/YR.

ASSOCIATES and SUPPORTERS are the LIFE-BLOOD of N-S-A. ASSOCIATES (18yrs.+) are often COLLEGE STUDENTS paid to DISTRIBUTE INFO regarding TBI and other serious matters. ASSOCIATES often find SUPPORTERS (any age) who will DONATE to N-S-A: 1) to EDUCATE the PUBLIC regarding TBI and 2) to CONTRIBUTE to the SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM. ASSOCIATES and SUPPORTERS should keep a stack of QR CODES to DISTRIBUTE to HELPREVENTBI and to RECRUIT ASSOCIATES and SUPPORTERS. MORE CARDS, MORE PERSONNEL, MORE EDUCATION to the PUBLIC, MORE DONATIONS. Jock Patterson FOUNDER N-S-A [email protected]
