Concussion Discussion:

TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES - In sports or sports-like activities, Player A applies quick and sufficient force 1) to move Player B's head while Player B is stationary or 2) to greatly change the direction of Player B's head while Player B is moving. Player B's brain could contact Player B's skull, causing a TBI. Examples of such contact are here-in listed but are not limited to: head to head, head to body, body, or head to the ground. TBI is also possible when such action or contact causes front to back whiplash or quick side movement of the head and neck. Wearing a helmet cannot guarantee to prevent such an injury. Any unattended TBI could result in brain damage. 

A "Timely Whistle," blown at the quickest opportunity to stop unnecessary contact, will reduce the number of injuries (especially TBI) in all youth & high school football. In an effort to prevent injuries, football officials must be ready to blow a "Timely Whistle" on every play.

Mothers take note: N-S-A’s Quicker Whistles campaign will educate everyone regarding a safer way to play football. Quicker Whistles could eliminate half the concussions in high school football games. N-S-A needs your help. Your voice(s) will lead football officials and high school hierarchy to support Quicker Whistles, which will save brains.

N-S-A is the only national non-profit organization in the U.S.A. actively working to promote the prevention of TBI in all youth and high school contact sports, especially football.
