US Soccer's Recognize to Recover
U.S. Soccer has responded to ever growing concern for player safety by introducing a comprehensive player health and safety program called RECOGNIZE TO RECOVER. The first-of-its-kind program aims to reduce injuries in soccer players of all ages and promote safe play by those on and around the field.
RECOGNIZE TO RECOVER was developed with the help of medical experts and will provide coaches, players, parents and referees with information, guidance and educational materials to improve the prevention and management of injuries. In addition to providing links to valuable resources, RECOGNIZE TO RECOVER
seeks to make substantive changes to the game that will make it more safe - especially for our younger players who are far more susceptible to concussion-related injuries.
