Cascade Christian Thrive Programs Concussion Awareness
Cascade Christian Schools believes participation in athletics improves physical fitness, coordination, self-discipline, and gives students valuable opportunities to learn important social and life skills. With this in mind it is important that we do as much as possible to create and maintain an enjoyable and safe environment.
As a parent/guardian or student, you play a vital role in protecting participants and helping them get the best from sport.
Player and parental education in this area is crucial, which is the reason for the Concussion Management and Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness information you are receiving.

If you have questions regarding any of the information provided, please contact the Thrive Program Director at your school.
Concussion Awareness A concussion is a brain injury, and all brain injuries are serious. They are caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or by a blow to another part of the body with the force transmitted to the head. They can range from mild to severe, and can disrupt the way the brain normally works.
Even though most concussions are mild, all concussions are potentially serious and may result in complications including prolonged brain damage and death if not recognized and managed properly. In other words, even a “ding” or a bump on the head can be serious. You can’t see a concussion, and most sports concussions occur without loss of consciousness. Signs and symptoms of concussion may show up right after the injury, or can take hours or days to fully appear. If your child reports any symptoms of concussion, or if you notice the symptoms or signs of a concussion yourself, seek medical attention right away.
Symptoms may include one or more of the following:
* Headaches* “Pressure in head” * Nausea or vomiting* Neck Pain* Balance Problems or dizziness * Blurred, double, or fuzzy vision * Sensitivity to light or noise* Feeling sluggish or slowed down* Feeling foggy or groggy * Drowsiness* Change in sleep patternsSigns observed by teammates, parents and coaches include:* Appears dazed* Vacant facial expression* Confused about assignment * Forgets plays* Is unsure of game, score, or opponent * Moves clumsily or displays incoordination* Answers questions slowly* Slurred Speech* Shows Behavior or personality changes * Can’t recall events prior to hit * Seizures or convulsions* Any change in typical behavior or personality* Loses consciousnessPLEASE PRINT THIS PAGE FOR EASY REFERENCEFor current and up-to-date information on concussions you can go to: http://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/index.htmlI HAVE RECEIVED, READ AND UNDERSTAND THE INFORMATION PRESENTED IN THE ABOVE CONCUSSION RECOGNITION SECTION.
