Concussions are caused by a bump to the head.  Even a mild bump to the head can be serious.  Signs of concussions can show up right after the injury or may not appear until days or weeks later.  If your child reports the symptoms of a concussion, seek medical attention right away.

The following are concussion signs you should look for if your child suffers a blow to the head during a sports activity:

  • Appears dazed or stunned
  • Is confused about their assignment or position
  • Forgets an instruction
  • Is unaware of the game, score, or opponent
  • Moves clumsily
  • Answers questions slowly
  • Loses consciousness (even briefly)
  • Shows behavior or personality changes
  • Can not recall events prior to the bump
  • Can not recall events after the bump
