A Youth Safety conference was held in Indianapolis at the IMIS-INDY trade show and it was very informative. They talked about many important subjects that relate to our kids and safety.
Dr.Terry Trammell was just one of the guest speakers.
Items that were discussed:
Psychology of the Competitive Young Mind
Hearing Protection and Hearing Loss
Helmets and Head G's
Helmet Testing - Snell Sticker
Mild Traumatic Brain Injury - Concussion
Head and Neck Supports
I will try to post links to some of the information that was presented to us at this meeting. I would encourage everyone to take some time and read through these documents to learn more on how to protect our kids. I learned a lot and will be making some changes to the way Ross and I do things going forward.
Here is a great link about concussions that we were given: http://www.cdc.gov/concussion/sports/index.html
Hearing loss and prevention is going to be the biggest area we work on. More to follow on that subject.
This is a open forum and it would be great to keep this information, questions and comments coming to help educate all of the USAC .25 racers and families.
