Recognize to Recover, U.S. Soccer’s comprehensive player health and safety program, was announced Wednesday. The program promotes safe play and is designed to reduce injuries in soccer players of all ages.
Developed with the help of medical experts, Recognize to Recover will provide coaches, players, parents and referees with information and guidance to improve the prevention and management of injuries.
Information about head injuries, including new guidelines regarding concussions, are included in the program. But, other important player health and safety topics, including heat-related illness and injury prevention are also provided. Next month, U.S. Soccer plans to add more topics to the program.
