Additional CDC/U.S. Soccer concussion information:

In December 2015, U.S. Soccer announced a comprehensive player health & safety program called Recognize to Recover, which promotes safe play and aims to reduce injuries in soccer players of all ages.

GOAL SAFETY GUIDELINES:

US Club Soccer expects its members to ensure safe training and competition environments. This includes the installation, use and storage of all movable soccer goals.

US Club Soccer recognizes the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s Guidelines for Movable Soccer Goal Safety as the preferred resource for goal safety. US Club Soccer recommends that its members download, save and make this document easily accessible to all applicable personnel.

Please also note that, according to the CPSC, “These guidelines are intended to address the risk of movable soccer goal tipover. They are not a CPSC standard, nor are they mandatory requirements. Therefore, the Commission does not endorse them as the sole method to minimize injuries associated with soccer goals.”
