At Penn State, we require our student staff for Intramurals, club sport officers, and club sport coaches to complete two of the SportRisk training modules: Concussion Education & Awareness and Concussion Recognition & Response. These modules provide learners with information about concussions and the importance of identifying symptoms. We have received positive feedback about the module design and the content is easily transferrable. So far over 375 students and staff have passed the associated quizzes, and we are expecting that number to grow as the academic year continues.

I am starting up a brand new Athletic Training department in Campus Recreation and Sport Risk has been a key piece to the development of all of the concussion protocols we have been implementing for our students, staff and club athletes. Ian has been amazing, super flexible and easy to work with. You can easily get a hold of him and he is willing to work with the Sport Risk team to try and make adjustments in the concussion package deal when trying to adapt it specific to your program. I have mentioned SportRisk to many other programs already and look forward to continued use with the SportRisk team!
