INTRODUCTION TO CRASHCOURSE
CRASHCOURSE: CHANGING THE WAY YOUNG PEOPLE UNDERSTAND CONCUSSIONS
CrashCourse is a video-based interactive learning experience for students and youth sports organizations. It was developed in collaboration with Stanford University’s leading education, engineering & medical researchers, as well as their world-class coaches and student-athletes.
Filmed in both Virtual Reality and HD, the CrashCourse Football concussion education experience puts students virtually on the field during a high school football game.
After two years of research, six months of production & thousands of hours of testing, CrashCourse provides students, parents & coaches with the latest medical knowledge on prevention and treatment of concussions.

We invite you to enjoy this introductory video to add to your journey to become the best Coach, Administrator, Parent, or Referee of youth tackle football that you can be!
