Team Up Speak Up

En Françcais

The goal of Team Up Speak UpTM is for as many athletes as possible to hear a simple speech. The core message: athletes have a responsibility to tell a team leader if they notice concussion signs in a teammate.

The Team Up Speak Up Speech should come from a coach or team leader at the begining of an athletic season. Whatever role you play, you can help us change the concussion culture and improve concussion reporting. Take the pledge to give the speech or bring Team Up Speak Up to athletes in your community.

The third annual US Lacrosse Team Up Speak Up Week was March 1-7, 2020. Every lacrosse coach in America was asked to give this simple, one-minute speech at the beginning of the season to help improve concussion reporting and change the concussion culture for the better. Watch coaches from Team USA, Georgetown, the University of Maryland, and Loyola University Maryland explain why activating teammates through Team Up Speak Up is a great way to build a positive team culture.
