U.S. Soccer announces player safety campaign that includes restrictions on heading in youth soccer

November 25, 2015

Following the resolution of a class action lawsuit regarding youth soccer concussion, the United States Soccer Federation has recently announced an upcoming player safety campaign that will include new youth soccer initiatives in part to improve concussion awareness, provide more uniform concussion management and eliminate heading in the youngest players.

“The genesis for developing the campaign was unrelated to the lawsuit, as U.S. Soccer has been working on a player safety campaign since long before the lawsuit was filed,” a press release from U.S. Soccer noted. “The campaign was developed with the help of medical experts to provide coaches, players, parents and referee with information, guidance and additional educational materials to improve the management of injuries, including concussions.”
